The temperature dropped to 6 degrees in Atlanta on Tuesday at 8:13 a.m.
That is Atlanta's coldest temperature in 18 years, when it also hit 6 degrees on Feb. 5, 1996.
To my surprise, Tuesday's low didn't even make the top 10 coldest list!
The all-time coldest temperature in Atlanta was -9 degrees in 1899, according to the National Weather Service.
Tuesday's low is much further down the list at #48. It can always be worse.
