The city is bracing for freezing cold temperatures this weekend for the first time this fall season.

Cool air is moving into the tri-state area over the weekend from Canada and will have temperatures dropping into the 30s at night, the National Weather Service said.

Friday night there will be a low of 48 degrees in the city, and mid to upper 30s in the suburbs.

Saturday will be partly cloudy, windy, and much cooler as high pressure will bring the first shot of real chilly air to the region. The high temperature will be 56 in the city, mid 50s in the suburbs.

Sunday will be partly cloudy, breezy, and continued cool as high pressure will remain in control of the weather for the region. The high temperature will be only 50 in the city, upper 40s in the suburbs.

According to the National Weather Service, the low temperatures have prompted frost advisories and freeze watches and warnings to be issued from the Dakotas to the Appalachians.
