High pressure will be our main weather feature throughout the southeast this weekend. Clear skies tonight coupled with filtration of extremely cold air from the north will drop our overnight lows between the mid 20s and low 30s. Freeze warnings and hard freeze warnings are set in place for the viewing area beginning around 9pm and is expected to lift at 10am Sunday morning. Tomorrow afternoon temps rise into the low 60s with mostly sunny skies. To the west, an upper level low begins to deepen allowing for the development of another cold front. This front and Low pressure system will move towards the east; effecting our local area as early as Monday night. Rain chances will be involved with Christmas Eve, Day, and into Wednesday as the front passes over head. Expect light to moderate rainfall with a few isolated thunderstorms during the afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday. By Thursday, the front passes, high pressure and dry air take over with mostly sunny skies  and temps ranging between the upper 50s and low 60s for highs. Lows will rebound into the low 50s as the front moves over head and drop into the upper 30s once the front clears out.
