As advertised, Christmas was the coldest in 31 years in the Columbus area with the high only making it to 40 degrees. Lows heading into Saturday morning will be frigid, with most places ranging from 18 to 26. This is the kind of weather where you want to think about protecting your pipes.

Cold for Christmas and Sunny for the Weekend!

We are on tap for the coldest Christmas across the Chattahoochee Valley that we have seen in several years!!

Bitter Cold Christmas on Tap

The rain is in the process of moving out, but there is some mixing of sleet and snow on the back edge of the precipitation as things are moving out. This won’t amount to much, and the bigger story is the switch to much colder weather on the back side of the rain.

Rainy for Christmas Eve, but Mostly Sunny for Christmas Day!

We will see a lot of rain around on Christmas Eve throughout the day with a few storms in the mix, and we will see our temperatures dropping throughout the day, too.
