A warm front will approach the region during the day on Friday, causing temperatures to trend above normal as we head into the weekend. A cold front will then pass through the region late Saturday and Saturday night, bringing an increased chance for some showers, followed by cooler and less humid air to close out the weekend. Canadian high pressure builds into the area once again to start the new work week next week.
