First Alert: Chilly night ahead

First Alert Forecast 10/11 10 p.m.

(KFVS) - It is time to pull out the sweater and jackets!

Brian Alworth says tonight will be mainly clear and chilly with overnight lows in the mid 30s valley locations to low 40s in the Bootheel. Clouds will thicken from west to east on Friday, with patchy mainly light rain developing….starting early afternoon around Farmington and then gradually spreading southeast.

Temps Friday may actually peak earlier than usual as clouds and eventually rain make it increasingly chilly late in the day and especially in the evening. Models are giving us about a trace south to a quarter inch of rain north with this system.

Saturday looks like a nice day, in-between systems with partly cloudy and cool but dry conditions.

However, a couple of disturbances shooting out of the southwest show the potential for more clouds and rain on Sunday and again on Monday.

Later next week it looks like we’ll get drier and gradually warmer but Monday in particular could be chilly and wet with highs in the 40s and 50s, if the wet system verifies.
