What we are working on Friday afternoon

Weather

A FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY...We have cooled into the 50s across the region and we will continue to see those temperatures drop behind this cold front. This afternoon we could be talking about some areas seeing 40s outside along with some damp and breezy conditions. Pushing into the weekend we will get rid of the rain chances but we will see the chilly temperatures stick around.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Leftover showers. Winds NW 5-10. Low: 37.
TOMORROW: Mostly sunny. Winds: NW 5-10. High: 52.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: We are looking at the potential for patchy frost overnight and then widespread frost on our Sunday morning. Overnight lows will dip into the 30s both mornings, with a freeze warning in effect for our Sunday morning. This weekend we are looking at plenty of sunshine through the afternoon hours with highs only heating up in the 50s area wide. If you will be spending time outside, we recommend a heavy coat and other winter gear.
