Although we woke up with frosty & clear conditions, clouds will be increasing throughout the day as a disturbance moves out of the Gulf of Mexico and works its way NE. We won't see much in the way of rain from this system, but certainly could see a few sprinkles in our southernmost counties later tonight, with the rest of us seeing scattered showers into Friday. High temperatures in this time will be topping out in the upper 50s today, near 60 tomorrow.

We'll dry back out for the weekend with highs back into the mid-upper 60s! Although a very stray shower is possible on Sunday, most if not all of us should remain dry both days.

70° temperatures return for Monday out ahead of our next cold front. There remains some uncertainty in regards to the exact track of the low pressure system, therefore we will be keeping a close eye on any strong-severe storm potential heading into the start of the work week. At this point, anticipate showers and storms with the potential for gusty winds as well. Temperatures will drop dramatically behind this front, taking us back below freezing by the middle of next week!
