A storm off the coast will throw some clouds our way late Friday into part of Saturday morning, especially east of the Parkway. That won’t stop temperatures from dropping quickly, though. Make sure you bundle up for high school football Friday evening.

Temperatures start in the 30s Sunday and Monday mornings, with frost being more scattered at that point.

High pressure forces the jet stream (and colder air) to go farther north through at least the first half of next week. Highs Monday through Wednesday will mostly peak between 67 and 73°, which is about 5 to 10° above average.
