A cold front will cross into the region Friday, resulting in showers and thunderstorms in the Friday forecast, with a high of 88 degrees.

“High pressure will build into the region in the wake of the front, ushering in a much cooler and less humid air mass for the weekend,” National Weather Service meteorologists wrote in their forecast discussion.

It should be a beautiful, sunny weekend. Saturday and Sunday’s forecast highs are 81 and 83 degrees, respectively.
