From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone

A relief from colder temperatures tonight, as freezing temperatures will be out of the picture, and we will only see lows in the low-mid 40's.  Tomorrow will also be another relatively warm day with highs in the lower 60's under increasing cloud cover.  Fire danger is possible with warmer temperatures and extremly strong winds.  Expect to feel winds from the south at 20 to 45 miles per hour with even higher gusts this weekend.

Sunday will begin with warmer temperatures, getting up to 68 degrees with a chance for rain, but then a cold front barrels through the state in the evening.  Sunday night the cold front will switch winds from the north, bring our temperatures down to the low 20s, and bring us a chance for freezing drizzle.

Highs will only get up into the upper 20's Monday and Tuesday with a 30 to 40 percent chance for freezing drizzle and freezing rain Monday through Thursday.

Afternoon temperatures will finally climb above freezing after Wednesday, however a slight chance for freezing drizzle or freezing rain remains in the forecast for Friday.
