First Alert Forecast shows an unusually nice late August day, possible storms this weekend

It's Friday, Aug. 21, 2015.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Expect a beautiful, cool Friday morning. Be careful, though, Brian is watching for fog in his First Alert Forecast, especially close to day break. Today will be another good day to do yard work, or to head out for some outdoor festivities.

Making headlines:

Lucky to be alive: A man is recovering from minor injuries after a paragliding incident on I-55. Authorities say the man was flying around the area when he appears to have lost altitude, at one point even hitting a motorhome that was driving on the interstate.

Big blow: A gas line exploded at a high school in New York City, injuring three construction workers, one of them critically. The blast heavily damaged three floors of the building.

Warmest ever: July 2015 set a record for being the hottest month worldwide ever recorded.

Split 19 ways: A $1 million Powerball prize will be split 19 ways after a group of workers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis shared a winning ticket for the Aug. 12 drawing.

What's trending:

Viral video: Have you seen this yet? Talk about scary! A lightning bolt struck an airplane full of people as it sat on the runway.
