Ready for the big chill?

This weekend, we’ll get it.

Forecasters expect temperatures to dip into the low- to mid-50s on Saturday night and early Sunday morning, the coldest air in South Florida since March.

The chilly air will continue Sunday night with lows in the 60s. Highs on Sunday will be in the low- to mid-70s.

"It really will be fabulous, feeling very much like fall," said CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez. “We could see some record lows.”

And it’ll be a darker weekend, too, with Daylight Saving Time coming to an end. Turn your clocks back an hour by 2 a.m. Sunday.

A less intense cold front will roll in for Halloween.

On Friday night, expect a few scattered showers and milder temperatures, with lows in the 70s.
