(KFVS) - Good Friday morning, it is Oct. 12.

First Alert Weather

Today will be chilly and the sun won’t stick around for long.

Lisa Michaels says clouds will be increasing during the morning. Light rain will move in during the afternoon and evening.

The first half of the weekend is looking to be dry and cool but the second half will have rain moving in that will linger on through the first day of next week. One thing to monitor is the river levels along the Mississippi. It will reach its flood stage and peak into next week.

Next week is looking to be relatively dry and cool but we’re keeping an eye on Tuesday and Wednesday morning where we could have temps dip into the mid 30s which could cause some frost in our northern counties.
