(KFVS) -

Good morning! It's Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

First Alert Forecast

Grab that jacket! It's a little chilly this morning. Laura Wibbenmeyer says it could dip into the 40s or 50s by daybreak. The cloud cover that will move into some of our northern counties will keep temperatures from getting into the 70s. The First Alert team is also keeping a close eye on Hurricane Irma and how it could affect us.

Making Headlines

'May God protect us all.' As Hurricane Irma made its first landfall overnight, officials in Barbuda warned people there to seek protection from Irma's "onslaught" in a statement that closed with: "May God protect us all."

Tropical Storm Katia becomes the third named storm churning in the Atlantic. No watches or warnings are currently in effect for Katia, but the NHC says a tropical storm watch could be required for the Mexican state of Veracruz later today.
