First Alert Forecast

Showers are lingering in the eastern part of our viewing area this morning. The light rain isn't enough to impact our current drought conditions. It will be dry again this weekend. Brian Alworth said it will also be a seasonable nice weekend for December with partly cloudy or sunny conditions with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. A big cold front moves in by the middle of next week, so get ready to bundle up!
