Thanks to the mostly clear skies and light winds, temperatures will drop to right around 16 degrees Friday night into Saturday Morning. With high pressure over the region, Saturday will be similar to Friday but with slightly warmer temperatures. Temperatures on Saturday will struggle to reach the 40 degrees mark. Late in the day on Saturday and heading into the overnight hours, the region will experience a shift in the winds that will be coming in from the southeast. Cloud cover will move into the area during the overnight hours on Saturday into Sunday morning thanks to a disturbance that will swing through the Midwest. As the storm system moves into the Ohio River Valley, precipitation will break out across the area during the morning hours on Sunday. The temperature on Sunday will top out around 45 degrees.
