5 things to know Oct. 11

(KFVS) - Good morning! It's Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017.

First Alert Forecast
Jacket alert! Laura Wibbenmeyer says you'll probably need one as you head out the door as temperatures are in the 50s. There will also be a bit of a breeze most of the day. The clouds will hang in the northern half of the Heartland all day. If you're under those clouds, you won't feel temperatures above the 60s. But, these cool temperatures won't stick around long. We'll be back in the mid-80s by the weekend.
