ROANOKE, Va. – The cold front we’ve been telling you about all week is now well east of the area and Canadian high pressure is building in.

Many areas are waking up with temperatures in the 30s and quite a few of you will have frost on the ground when you walk out the door. When you’re preparing that Saturday morning cup of coffee, consider making it an extra warm cup due to the chilly start.
