(KFVS) -

Good morning! It's Tuesday, December 5, 2017.

First Alert Forecast

A much colder start to Tuesday than what we've experienced the last week or so. The 'feels-like' numbers are in the 30s for most areas. It will still be pretty breezy this morning, but those winds should die down this afternoon. Highs today will be in the 40s. Our snow chances are looking a little lighter. Laura Wibbenmeyer calls the system that will move in Friday night into Saturday 'moisture starved.' That means we may see some flurries, but any accumulation looks minor at this point.
