FIRST ALERT: Cold and windy morning to give way to sunny afternoon

It is Friday, March 25, 2016.

Waking up Friday it will be noticeably cooler, in fact it will be near freezing in some areas. Brian suggests pulling out the coat as you head to door, because north winds will make it feel colder. By lunchtime the sky should clear and the winds will be calming down. FIRST ALERT: While Easter morning looks dry, storms may move in that afternoon.
