Cumming and Forsyth County are set for a freeze Tuesday and Wednesday nights as temperatures dip to the mid to upper 20s.

A freeze warning is in effect from 1 to 10 a.m. Wednesday. It warns of freezing temps, which coupled with a wind advisory—set for 10 a.m. Tuesday to 1 a.m. Wednesday—will result in wind chill readings in the teens tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

North winds sustained at 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph, are expected.

"The majority of the area will have freezing temperatures again Wednesday night into Thursday morning with the lingering cold airmass," NWS' hazardous weather outlook says. "Wind speeds will be much lower so resultant wind chill values will be decently higher than Tuesday night."
 
The Weather Channel says a powerful blast of Arctic air is coming south across central and eastern parts of the country, ushering in the coldest air of the fall and the first snowflakes for some areas.

In Cumming, expect a low of 26 tonight with high winds, followed by a high of 49 Wednesday with sunny skies and winds 5 to 15 mph, according to NWS' forecast. The low is expected to dip to 28 Wednesday night.
