After pushing westward into Tennessee yesterday, that low has taken a southeasterly turn and centralized itself over northern Georgia once again. We'll see more chances for isolated rainfall both today and tomorrow as that low drags more moisture across the Midwest. It does appear however, that it will finally begin to travel up the eastern seaboard by Thursday. As for Thursday around our neck of the woods, would you believe it if I told you we had more chances for rain!? Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop throughout the region that day as a weak low pressure system swings through the Great Lakes. Even with all those chances for rain over the next few days, temperatures are expected to continue to warm up. After hitting 73° yesterday, we'll jump to 75° today and climb as high as 79° by Thursday afternoon. Sadly, this warming trend won't last into the weekend; a passing cold front on Friday will drop afternoon highs back down into the upper 60s. Further complicating the situation, a secondary cold front will arrive Saturday afternoon halting temperatures at 66°. A strong area of high pressure will move in over the Great Plains on Sunday; northerly winds paired with the cooler air mass will drop afternoon temperatures into the upper 50s. Overnight lows for Sunday night and Monday morning will bottom out near 37°.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
