Get out the quilts and bring in the dogs: Winter's making another early visit.
A freeze warning is in effect for much of Georgia, including Northeast Georgia, tonight through Friday morning. Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20s overnight, with highs struggling to reach the mid-40s on Friday.
Temperatures will stay cold through the weekend before the next batch of rain arrives with slightly warmer air Sunday.
Statewide, the National Weather Service said low temperatures will be in the mid-20s in the Dalton and Blairsville areas, and around 28 degrees in Atlanta.
Bitterly cold weather also is expected in parts of south Georgia. Americus, for instance, is expected to see a low temperature around 34 degrees by early Friday morning.
