A cold front will bring cooler air back into the area on Thursday.  Highs will be closer to 60°.  A second cold front will pass on Friday, and this will tug in much colder air for the start of the weekend.

Lows Saturday morning will drop down into the 20s.  The last time we had lows in the 20s was on February 17.
