ATLANTA (CBS46) - The milder spring feel continues through Thursday before a late season cold front ushers in some near record cold temperatures.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy with likely no more than a shower in spots.  The majority of the rain will hold off until Thursday night into Friday morning when the cold front passes through Atlanta.

No severe weather and no flooding rain is forecast. But, what is forecast is a rapid drop of temperatures. We are going from highs on Thursday in the mid-to-upper 70's to highs only in the mid 50's on Friday.

The weekend still looks frosty in the morning. Metro Atlanta emperatemperaturesbe just at or barely above freezing on Saturday and Sunday morning, so all your small plants and vegetables will need to be protected.  Countryside locales will be below freezing, especially by Sunday morning with the risk of a freeze. You will want to bring the pets in too, so they have a warmer place to sleep.

The chilly weather is short-lived, as next week looks like a return to typical early spring temperatures.
