First Alert: Cloudy, dry afternoon

First Alert Forecast at Noon 2/14

(KFVS) - It’s a windy, dry, and chilly afternoon.

Brian Alworth says winds could gust up to 30 or 40 mph and there are wind advisories for out southern counties.

High temperatures will be in the 50s to near 60, but it will feel cooler because of the wind.

Colder air will blow in from the North overnight.

Friday is a First Alert Action Day.

The morning will be cloudy, but the afternoon is what will need to be monitored closely.

During the early afternoon, snow will be moving into our northern counties-accumulations as of now could one to three inches.

Sleet and freezing rain will be over central and southern portions of the Heartland, and this will be a concern with mild to moderate ice accumulations over some areas. This will cause hazardous travel conditions and isolated power outages especially Friday night through Saturday morning.

During the day on Saturday, temperatures will warm above freezing so any ice or snow that does accumulate will start to melt off.
