Happy Saturday, y’all!
The weekend is kicking off with sunshine and above freezing temperatures, which we’ll happily take.
Temperatures will peak at 46 degrees on Saturday with clear, sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.
But don’t put away your freeze gear just yet — temperatures will drop at night to a low of 27 degrees.
Nighttime skies will be mostly clear, forecasters said.
With freezing temperatures in the forecast, make sure to protect your pipes, check on your neighbors and family, keep your pets warm, and bring plants inside.
When driving, take it slow and leave more room than usual between your vehicle and others.
A final hard freeze is expected Sunday morning. Forecasters do not expect hazardous weather at this time.
