TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- A high pressure sitting just to our west has helped keep skies nice and clear for Thursday with light north winds. We'll stay under this high pressure's influence through tomorrow night, meaning clear skies will prevail until then. Winds will also remain calm, which, when mixed with cloudless skies at night lead to cold temperatures.

In fact, there is a FROST ADVISORY for counties west of Echols, Clinch, Leon and Wakulla counties, not including those listed. This means that frost is possible with overnight lows falling to the lower and mid 30s. A FREEZE WARNING is in effect for counties east of, and including, Echols, Clinnch, Leon, and Wakulla counties. This means overnight temperatures will fall close to 30 degrees for at least two hours. Patchy frost is also possible. Everyone needs to protect their sensitive plants, and bring in their pets. There is no need to worry about protecting exposed pipes.

Tonight, lows are expected to fall to the lower and mid 30s for everyone under clear skies. It is possible that frost may try to form overnight. Because of the cold temperatures and the chance of frost, which is why you'll want to protect your pets and plants for one more night.

Friday will end our work week on a warm note; we're talking highs near 70 degrees! Skies will stay most sunny throughout the day with a light easterly wind. Friday night, winds will become more southerly, allowing for lows to feel seasonal and bottom out in the mid 40s. The weekend will see partly cloudy skies and a very small chance of isolated showers Saturday night with highs in the mid 70s.
