Good Morning! It's Friday, October 21.

First Alert Forecast

Make sure the kiddos have a jacket this morning as you send them off to school. It will be noticeably cooler with temps in the 40s. And although it will be sunny for your Friday, it won’t get much warmer than the low 60s. That translates to a chilly Heartland Football Friday, so Brian suggests if you’ll be cheering on your team to bring a jacket and maybe even a blanket. FIRST ALERT: Brian is tracking the possibility of the Heartland’s first frost for Saturday.
