— A fickle few days are ahead for temperatures in Southwest Florida.

Afternoon temperatures in the 70s today will be chopped nearly in half by Saturday evening, and could get as low as the 30s by Sunday.

The two-day cold snap is expected to push temperatures down into the 40s by Saturday evening and into the high 30s by Sunday morning in more coastal areas of Southwest Florida, according to NBC-2 meteorologists.

Inland residents can expect temperatures a few degrees colder.

Despite a sunny forecast for Sunday, the high by midday is expected to be in the 50s, possibly rising into the low 60s, only to drop into the 30s again Monday morning.

A light frost may accompany the low morning temperatures.

But the forecast puts this corner of the state back in the 70s by Monday afternoon and the 80s by Tuesday.
