Atlanta breaks a 44 year old record low on Tuesday morning, as it dipped down to 6 degrees. Wind chill values made it feel much worse, down around 10 to 15 below zero.
Athens, Columbus and Macon all joined the list of record lows Tuesday. North of Atlanta, the typical mountain chill was felt, as several cities dipped below zero. Blairsville and Blue Ridge dropped to one below and two below, respectively.
