Chilly Weekend
Thursday morning's 35° tied a record set in 1989.  For Saturday, the record is 37° in 1976.  For Sunday, it's 36° in 1966.  We might tie or break the record lows either morning, but Sunday appears more likely.  We won't touch the all-time low for May; that was 28° on May 8, 1989.  Frost is possible both weekend mornings, but especially Sunday.
