Does Atlanta get cold? Yes. But the key difference is that it doesn't stay cold. For example, the cold weather that we've been experiencing isn't necessarily unusual; however the duration of this colder weather pattern is highly unusual in that cold fronts usually last no longer than a couple of days before the daytime highs are back to the 50s. Additionally Spring arrives very early compared to the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and New England.
I was just telling my boss that it looks like a typical MN winter day outside. We didn't get all that much snow up there most of the time, and the cold weather snap we've had has cooled the ground to the point where snow sticks to the roads and such, so it's a very familiar sight for me.

The temps we're seeing are actually not that atypical for MN, either.

I know! When I stepped outside, I was immediately reminded of back home in Wisconsin. It felt just the same!
