David: Warm, cloudy as our next front approaches

(WVUE) - A powerful cold front will arrive Tuesday afternoon and bring a good chance rain and maybe a few storms. Ahead of the front temperatures may briefly reach 80 degrees but drop sharply by evening into the 50's.

The coldest air of the season arrives for the rest of the week. Lots of clouds and occasional spots of light rain will move across the area Wednesday and Thursday. A blustery north wind means temperatures staying in the 40's for the most part.

Some rain is possible Friday morning but clearing late in the day. Reinforcing cold air for the weekend will keep temperatures below normal. Freezing temperatures are likely north and west of the lake this weekend.
