    Anybody else catch this tidbit from the afternoon LWX disco? SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/... High pressure from the central U.S. will migrate eastward and build in over the region on Friday and into Saturday, bringing more October like temperatures to the region. A sharp shortwave trough and upper jet will move over the area Friday night and into Saturday morning, giving us another shot at showers. Higher elevations along the Potomac Highlands may even be greeted with some wet snowflakes given 850 temperatures do drop below freezing. Conditions will trend drier the second half of Saturday and into Saturday night with mainly clear conditions and slightly below normal temperatures. We may finally get some frost in some of our western zones Saturday night.
