Good morning! It's Tuesday, November 7. 2017.

First Alert Forecast

We're waking up to cool temperatures with a little mist spraying outside. Laura Wibbenmeyer says the clouds will hang around most of the day along with a breeze. It's not going to get much warmer today than what it is when you walk outside. Highs will not make it out of the 50s. In fact, Laura says thanks to the wind, it will feel like the 40s in a lot of areas. A few showers will move into the area around sunset, so keep your umbrella with you. The sun returns on Wednesday and Laura says Thursday will be downright sunny. Thursday also looks to be the warmest day of the week. She's still monitoring rain chances for Saturday night into Sunday morning.
