A strong cold front will sweep through the state overnight, bringing a big push of cooler and drier air behind it.
Our sky begins to clear out Saturday morning and we can look forward to an afternoon of sunshine and highs mainly in the 70s.
High pressure moving in will provide us a clear and crisp Saturday night as lows drop into the 50s area wide.
Sunday looks spectacular with a sunny sky and highs back into the 70s. The high stays in control of the southeastern U.S. for much of next week, allowing temps to remain fairly seasonable in the upper 70s to lower 80s and our sky to remain rain-free.

As we look ahead to next Thursday, the next approaching cold front will draw up deeper atmospheric moisture and bring a chance for scattered showers and storms to round out the week.
Wave heights of two to four feet come down to around one to three feet as well. An ocean swell is expected to keep us in a moderate rip current threat this weekend, so use caution if you’re planning a swim.
Plenty of sun boosts the UV index into the high category, with under 20 minutes for a sunburn to get established.
We had Subtropical Storm Oscar develop Friday evening over the central Atlantic.
Oscar is located 1255 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands and 1210 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. This storm has winds of 45mph and is moving north-northwest at 9mph with a minimum central pressure of 1005mb.
Oscar is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm Saturday as it turns west. A front early next week will pick Oscar up and turn it quickly northeast before even reaching Bermuda. Oscar is no threat to Florida or the United States.
No other concerns in the tropics at this time. The tropical season runs through November 30.
