The weekend is here an so it the warmth. With high pressure anchored off the Carolina coast we will continue to see winds out of the SE on Saturday. This will bring highs in the upper 70s to low 80s across much of the area. The beaches may be a few degrees cooler due to the proximity of the cooler waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
This warm weather will continue through Sunday and then things start to change late Sunday and Monday as another cold front moves in. This next front will bring a good chance for showers and even some thunderstorms mainly on St. Patrick's day.
Once the front clear late Monday, skies will begin to clear and only slightly cooler weather will move in. Temperatures should be back to near normal reading by Wednesday of next week. Have a great St. Patrick's day weekend, and be safe.
