The daytime highs soar into the 60s over the weekend with overnight lows that will settle into the 50s.
While a Hard Freeze Warning and Wind Chill Advisory end Thursday morning, the good news across Northwest Florida is approaching warmer weather.
According to the National Weather Service, the Wind Chill Advisory ends at 8 a.m. and the Hard Freeze Warning at 9 a.m.
Temperatures had dipped into the teens overnight and the entire region endured a brutally cold early Wednesday morning that saw a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and light snow in portions of the Emerald Coast.
But that ends Friday.
While the low temperature Thursday night is still forecast in the mid-20s, things pick up Friday as the daytime is forecast by the weather service at 52 degrees with an overnight low of 37.
Saturday's high is 60 degrees with a nighttime low of 45. On Sunday, the high will be 64 degrees with a much more seasonal overnight temperature of 55 degrees forecast.
That high in the 60s remains through midweek in the extended forecast with generally comparable night temperatures as Sunday.
