We're still tracking a storm system that will move in late in the week. Clouds will build in Friday with highs near 70 degrees. Temperatures will get to near-record levels too. The record high temperature for the day is 73 degrees from 1941. Winds will increase with gusts to near 35 mph. Rain, and possibly a couple of t-storms are also expected to move in along a cold front in the evening.

This cold front is expected to be the strongest of the season with temperatures falling sharply behind the front Friday night. We're in for a cold Saturday and there's a small chance that we see some flurries mix with rain early Saturday as moisture wraps around the back side of the low-pressure system. It will stay windy into Sunday but Sunday looks cold and dry. Stay tuned! --Danielle Dozier
