but as we head into midday, showers become fewer and lighter. in fact, by mid-afternoon they should all be gone and clouds will be clearing out quickly. we expect mostly sunny skies for many areas by sunset. with the passing of a morning cold front, we do not expect any sunshine in the afternoon to warm us up. temperatures will remain steady or drop a bit into the afternoon, likely into the upper 40s and lower 50s. tonight's high school games should be clear with colder temperatures, likely in the lower 40s and upper 30s during the evening. freeze warnings go into effect later tonight and remain through saturday morning. temperatures should mostly be in the upper 20s to lower 30s, making this the coldest we've been this fall. be sure to protect your pets and plants from the cold. saturday will bring abundant sunshine. but with a steady north breeze between 8 and 12 mph, highs will likely struggle to reach 50. expect most areas to only reach the mid and upper 40s. we remain mostly clear into sunday morning as well. so we're in for another frost or freeze with temperatures into the lower 30s. then through the day, clouds gradually build back across the area. later in the day, these clouds will be accompanied with a few isolated showers. highs may be a bit warmer, but not by much. most areas will reach into the upper 40s to lower 50s. then we expect the showers to become much more widespread into monday as an area of low pressure develops over the northern gulf of mexico and deep south. this will bring 0.25" to 1.50" through your monday before a deeper wedge of cold air arrives monday night and tuesday morning. monday's highs will reach into the upper 40s. then most of the precipitation should be out of here by tuesday morning. but as temperatures drop to near freezing, a few flurries could be squeezed out at the last minute. no impacts are expected in terms of winter weather other than that. this will likely remain the case. but if something changes, we will keep you updated. either way, we're even colder into tuesday with partly to mostly cloudy skies. highs only reach the lower to mid 40s. then into wednesday morning, we're not just talking about a freeze. we're talking about a deep freeze. morning temperatures will dip into the mid- 20s under clear skies. wind chills could be in the upper teens. then into wednesday afternoon, even with sunshine, we should only reach the upper 40s. we remain clear into thursday morning, leaving us with yet another freeze as temperatures slip down to near 30. then in the afternoon, we finally return to the lower 50s. needless to say, we're in for a cold weekend and week ahead. bundle up!for more details, visit our website at wtva.com and download our wtva weather authority app.
