From News9 meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

Today will feel absolutely wonderful with sunny skies and temperatures getting into the upper 70s.  Winds will become gusty in the afternoon creating potential fire danger.  Much of the state is under a red flag warning for the day.

Enjoy the warm weather today while it lasts, because tomorrow there will be a cold front coming through in the morning, knocking highs down 20°.  Tomorrow temperatures will only reach the mid 50s under partly cloudy skies.  Temperatures get knocked down even more for the weekend, making for a cloudy and cold Saturday and Sunday before a chance of precipitation Monday through Wednesday.
