Good morning! It's Thursday, October 12.

First Alert Forecast

You're waking up to another cloudy and cool morning. Laura Wibbenmeyer says the clouds will be stubborn and hard to move out today, but we will start to see some clearing from the southwest. If you’re under the clouds this afternoon, you'll see highs in the 60s and if you get some sun, the highs will be in the low 70s. But, don't get used to it. Near record highs are possible on Saturday and a chance of rain moves in on Sunday.
