GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The cold front that brought in the rain is now pulling away from the coast, leaving us with a very dry and sunny forecast as we head through the weekend. Highs will only show a brief cool down from today to Saturday (mid 70s to upper 60s), however a more substantial drop is in the works from Saturday to Sunday (upper 60s down to the upper 50s).

Winds will blow out of the west to start the weekend, and with the center of an incoming high pressure system still states away, the breeze will show a slow shift to the northwest. It is that breeze shift that will drive temperatures down through the weekend. Overnight lows will dip into the 30s both nights, creating a potential for frost early Sunday and Monday.

The moderate drought most of us find ourselves in will continue through the week. Our next round of rain will arrive at the tail end of the upcoming work week.
