A cold front is currently moving across the state this afternoon, which is creating wind gusts up to 45-mph. Cooler air will be moving into the state this evening because of this cold front. On Friday, a weak disturbance will move into the state, which will trigger a few showers, and even a few snow showers as the temperatures dip below freezing Friday evening.
