Cold Start to the Weekend in the East
The weekend will start off cold in much of the eastern third of the country as below average temperatures have settled across the region. The chilly air has pushed in behind the system that produced the severe storms earlier in the week. Freeze Warnings and Frost Advisories have been issued from the Ohio Valley into the Southeast.

Lows by Saturday morning will fall into the 30s from the Tennessee Valley eastward, across the Appalachians into the Middle Atlantic. Frost is likely, with many areas seeing below freezing temperatures. Readings will start to warm gradually Saturday afternoon as a southerly wind pulls up warmer air.
The area of high pressure will move quickly out into the Atlantic Ocean by Sunday morning. Temperatures will continue to moderate for the rest of the weekend.
