First Alert Forecast: What to expect 3/14

It is Monday, March 14, 2016.

Some of us may see some lingering, scattered rain this morning, but Brian's First Alert Forecast shows by mid-day the wet weather will have moved out of the Heartland. After that, expect a partly cloudy and mild afternoon. FIRST ALERT: Tomorrow could be the warmest day of 2016 so far, but the weekend is looking much cooler.
