ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Today will still be quite mild with highs in the mid-70s to lower 80s.

The high-pressure area with the warm air is moving off and weakening and the SW flow of warm air ahead of a cold front will be the last push of mild air before a major cooldown.

This quick animation illustrates the dramatic difference in temperatures between this weekend and the middle of next week.

While a lot of Halloween activities are going on this weekend, the evening of the 31st will be cold and blustery with a chance of showers.

Have a great weekend!
