A chilly October airmass has taken up residence across much of the eastern US, and it will stick around here through the weekend. Temps dropped into the upper 20s in some mountain locations this morning, while most spots in the Piedmont ranged from the mid 30s to the mid 40s.
Highs today through the weekend will be in the 60s across the Piedmont, and morning lows in many spots will drop into the mid and upper 30s. That will probably be good enough for some patchy frost both weekend mornings.
Highs will return to the 70s Monday through Wednesday or so, and then a sharp cold front will again approach late Thursday. Look for some rain chances with that front, and then another chilly airmass as we head through the weekend leading up to Halloween.
