Good morning! It's Friday, November 17, 2017.

First Alert Forecast

Grab your hats because we're on a weather roller coaster! Temperatures are at or around freezing this morning. Today's high will actually happen around midnight! Thanks to that system, we are under a threat of severe weather Saturday morning. Laura Wibbenmeyer says she expects storms to start around sunrise and continue until the early afternoon. Damaging winds will be the greatest threat with these storms. It will be much cooler and dry on Sunday. That pattern will last until Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday both look cool and dry,  but there does look to be a passing system that could bring some rain next Saturday.....and of course, travelers need to keep in mind that this time of year the weather can be very different just a few hundred miles away.
