High pressure will build just off the Southeast coast allowing much warmer air to move into the area through the upcoming weekend.
Afternoon highs will reach the upper 60s on Friday under mostly sunny skies. Winds will become southwesterly and remain that way into the upcoming weekend. By Saturday and Sunday we will see near-record or record-breaking highs as temps climb from the low 70s Saturday to the mid 70s by Sunday afternoon. What a way to welcome winter on Saturday evening.
A cold front will move through on Monday with showers likely. Cold air moves in just in time for Christmas with highs in the low 50s under sunny skies Christmas day.
