Temperatures today were well above average with gusty winds near 40 mph this afternoon. A Wind Advisory remains in effect until 2AM. Winds have been gusty as air quickly flows into a strong cold front sweeping the region. The front will arrive early Friday with weakening storms moving through. There will still be the chance of gusty winds, hail, frequent lightning, and flooding as a squall line passes. As the storms move east, colder air will push in and keep temperatures only in the 50s through the day. It will feel cooler than the temperature due to gusty westerly winds up to 35 mph. Storms should clear the Commonwealth by early afternoon.
We will feel a chilly start to the weekend with light patchy frost a possibility Saturday and Sunday mornings. Afternoon highs will go from the 50s on Saturday to mid 60s on Sunday as temperatures quickly rebound from the cool snap. Next week will be warmer with a chance of rain once again late Tuesday into Wednesday.
