GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The sunshine may have come out today, but that does not mean that we’ll automatically switch to warmer weather. In fact, colder air is on the way. The clear skies overnight will be coupled with a steady flow of frigid air thanks to a high pressure system approaching from the west. Air temperatures will fall to the low 20s to start the weekend, making the start of Saturday a First Alert Weather Day. The hard freeze that will occur across many inland areas could freeze exposed pipes. Be sure to take care of any animals you may have as well.

Temperatures will rebound rapidly over the weekend. Highs will go from the low 40s Saturday to the mid 50s by Sunday thanks to a southerly wind replacing the northerly flow that originally brought the chill to the East. Even warmer weather is on the way for the following week as highs are projected to reach the upper 60s to low 70s.
