Chilly, fall air to move into the Southeast this weekend

The warm and humid weather as of late will abruptly end over the weekend as a strong cold front moves through the region. A potent upper-level storm system out west, that’s been dumping snow in the mountains, will continue to slowly move east. This storm system will send a cold front south and east into the South, Tennesee Valley, Southeast, and Carolinas this weekend.

The cold front will move into areas west of the Mississippi River overnight Friday and will move through the entire Southeast on Saturday. Temperatures will fall below average from Sunday (October 17) through Tuesday (October 19). Morning temperatures will actually be quite chilly! See how long the cool air will stick around, how low temperatures will go, along with details on a couple of other cold fonts in the forecast.
