ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Break out the jackets -- or coats -- Sunday morning!

Temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s this weekend in Atlanta for the first time in over 5 months!

Lows Sunday morning are forecast to drop into the upper 40s in Metro Atlanta, and the lower 40s in the North Georgia mountains.

The last time the temperature dropped to 49 or below in Atlanta was on May 14, 2013.

The average low temperature for the entire month of October in Atlanta is 60, through October 17.

The average "first 40" in Atlanta is on October 4.

Next week

We're in an active weather pattern across the southeast, with several fronts forecast to move through North Georgia.

We'll see another cold front next Tuesday into Wednesday, and early data shows lows in the lower 40s by next Wednesday morning in Atlanta, with upper 30s outside of I-285!
