It is Thursday, July 28, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Some of the Heartland will be waking up to rain this morning, and then this afternoon will bring more storms. Brian says after an early morning system drops rain on us as it moves through we should have a quiet mid-day, but by early afternoon another storm system moves in bringing thunderstorms with it, including heavy rain and lightning. FIRST ALERT: Make sure you have alternate plans for any outdoor activities, because the weekend may be stormy.
