Very warm air will be pulled into Atlanta ahead of an approaching cold front. This spring-like pattern will cause temperatures to spike to record levels in Atlanta. Expect temperatures near 80 degrees in the afternoon, which would be more than 20 degrees above average!

If you have plans Friday, the entire day will be dry in Atlanta, but showers and a few storms will move into the region after midnight and while you sleep early Saturday morning.
