First Alert Forecast: Grab your winter coat! Cold mornings are ahead!

  • Lake Wind Advisory remains in effect for the Midlands until 8 pm tonight
  • Winds will gust to 30 to 35 mph, then start to settle down a bit late tonight
  • Morning temperatures will drop into the mid 30s Thursday and Friday mornings
  • Patchy frost is possible Friday morning with light winds expected
  • We'll see more showers for your weekend with high temps in the 50s and 60s.

It might be spring, but you'll need your winter coat the next couple of mornings.

As we move through your Wednesday night, it's going to be cold and breezy as an area of low pressure continues to spin over the Mid-Atlantic.  Under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies, our overnight low temperatures will drop into the mid 30s. Winds will blow in from the west between 5 and 15 mph.  No frost is expected tonight into Friday morning due to the winds staying up a bit.

On Thursday, we'll start the day with temperatures in the mid 30s. Highs will climb into the low 60s. We'll see mostly sunny skies as low pressure moves farther away from the U.S. and is replaced by high pressure from the west. Winds will be a tad on the breezy side, from the west-northwest between 5 and 15 mph. But by late Thursday night, the winds will go light, allowing for some patchy frost to develop as temperatures dip back into the mid 30s. So make sure you take care of your pets and plants.

By Friday, after a start in the mid 30s, highs will climb into the low and mid 60s under a mix of sun and clouds. A few more clouds will build in by late Friday ahead of our next weather maker.

Wet weather moves in Saturday and Sunday. The entire weekend doesn't look like a washout. Rain chances will increase from 30 percent late Saturday to 50 percent on Sunday.


Tonight: Partly Cloudy to Mostly Clear. Cold and Breezy. Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: W 5-15 mph.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. Breezy at Times. Highs in the low 60s. Winds: W/NW 5-15 mph.

Friday: Patchy AM Frost. Sun and Clouds. Highs in the low and mid 60s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
