Expect sunny, cool, and dry conditions through Thursday. Highs will reach the mid-60s and morning lows will be chilly with 40s across the metro area and 30s north and west of the lake.
Some patchy frost is possible in areas north and away from the Lake, with a light freeze even possible Thursday morning for some areas north of I-12.
A big warm-up really gets underway on Friday along with an increase in moisture and a chance for a few spotty showers or storms.
Highs will try and approach 80 this weekend but clouds and showers may limit the temperatures to the upper 70s. Rain chances will be in the 30-40% range both Saturday and Sunday, but there are likely to be many dry hours.
