ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A whipping wind highlights the Friday forecast. Along with the wind, some much cooler temperatures.

The wind is increasing as a strong area of high pressure builds in from northern Canada. With its origins so far north, we are on tap for a taste of some late winter weather around Atlanta. No, there won’t be any snow, but there could be some frost on the ground both Saturday and Sunday morning.

As you get ready for work and step out the door Friday, have the jacket ready! With temps in the 40s and the gusty northwest breeze blowing, it’s going to feel like the middle 30s. A partly cloudy sky is forecast for Friday, along with highs about 5 to 10 degrees below average in the afternoon.

That wind will be a factor through early Sunday. So, if you have some games or events planned outdoors, Sunday is more favorable than Saturday.
