It's Friday, July 1, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Early morning showers Friday should be out of the Heartland by sunrise. The rest of your Friday looks pleasant with partly cloudy skies and warm temps with highs expected in the upper 80s. The big story is the holiday weekend! Brian’s First Alert Forecast shows it will be a wet one. While making your plans, tune into The Breakfast Show and keep your KFVS12 Weather App handy, because the forecast is what meteorologists call “unsettled” …which means they know it will be rainy, but just how rainy is still up in the air.
