A cold front moves through Friday evening and chilly air follows. The front is dry so no rain is expected. Temperatures will cool to below average for the weekend with frost possible Sunday morning. Frost is most likely in the valleys and areas where the wind goes calm. Saturday will be a little breezy adding to the chilliness. Sunday will be less breezy.
High pressure settles in for next week and allows for slightly warmer temperatures as winds turn more southerly. There isn't any rain on the horizon until late next week.
