Meteorologist Kristy Steward's First Warning Forecast:

Happy Friday! We had record-breaking warmth in a few locations today including Wakefield, Williamsburg, and Elizabeth City. Tonight stays warm in the low to mid 50s.

Spring remains through Saturday. Highs tomorrow reach the low to mid 70s. Warm, but not record-breaking warmth. A cold front passes through early Sunday morning. Around it, scattered showers later Saturday continuing throughout Sunday morning.

Temperatures will rapidly drop Sunday. We'll wake up to temperatures in the 50s and 60s, dropping to the 40s in just an hour or two. Temperatures continue to gradually drop as the day goes on. By Sunday evening, we'll be in the upper 30s. Sunday will be windy too, so it will feel even colder than that all day.

Monday remains cold in the mid 40s, but there will be plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Temperatures get a bit warmer and closer to where we should be for this time of year, in the low 50s, through the rest of the workweek. A low pressure system riding along the coast could bring us scattered showers Tuesday into Wednesday.
