Good morning. It's Friday, October 27, 2017.

First Alert Forecast

The best weather of the day will be this morning. You might be tempted to leave home with a light jacket, but Laura Wibbenmeyer says by the time you drive home from work, you will need a heavy coat. It will be rainy and colder as the day continues. It will also be breezy, so the feels-like temperatures will be in the 30s. We may see a little snow and sleet mix in with the rain. The chill will last into the weekend. We'll likely see our first freeze of the season on Sunday morning. A freeze watch is in effect from late Saturday night through Sunday morning. The Halloween forecast still looks dry, but it will be cool.
