Temperatures cool about 5-10 degrees across the east by Saturday, while the rest of us hold onto milder numbers through Sunday. Later this weekend, a stronger cold front moves in across the east bringing even higher wind gusts. We stay dry through both of them, but some rain chances do sneak back into the state by the middle of next week. Also, cooler than average temperatures are in that extended forecast. So a little pattern change is on the way!
