Windy Saturday

Saturday will be windy with a mix of sun, clouds, and maybe a stray east coast shower.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Atlantic beaches on Saturday and will last throughout the holiday weekend.  Highs on Saturday will be in the mid-70s in the east coast metro area and the upper 70s along the Gulf coast.

Sunday will bring plenty of sun and a few clouds on a gentler breeze.  But rip currents will remain a threat at the Atlantic beaches.  Sunday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

After some overnight showers, clouds and more showers are in the forecast for Martin Luther King Day as a cold front moves in.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid-70s, but temperatures will drop quite quickly during the evening hours.

Tuesday morning will be chilly, with lows ranging from the mid-40s along the Gulf coast and interior to the mid-50s along the Atlantic coast.  Then the day will be sunny but with a chilly breeze.  Tuesday’s highs will only reach the low to mid-60s.

Wednesday morning will be the coldest of the season so far, with lows mostly in the 40s — but a few readings in the 30s well inland.  Lots of sun will follow, but Wednesday’s highs will struggle to hit the upper 60s.
