Hit-and-miss rain stays in the forecast each day through Friday.  A cold front Friday will bump up rain chances Friday afternoon before a brief break from the rain to start the weekend.

Temperatures will warm to above average on Tuesday.  Morning lows stay mild in the upper 40s and low 50s. Highs rebound to the 60s.

By Wednesday, temperatures will be rivaling records.  Highs in the 70s are expected Wednesday through Friday.  While we will likely end up just a few degrees shy of the record highs in Atlanta, it will be close!
