(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

First Alert Forecast

The cold is sticking around. Wind chills are below zero again early today.

When the clouds clear out later this morning we will get plenty of sun. That will warm us into the 20s.

Our warm-up continues on Thursday and Friday. We will see temperatures in the 30's and 40's with plenty of sunshine and lots of snow and ice melting.

We'll have a mild, but gloomy weekend. Our best chance for rain is Sunday night.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says the system is moving slower and strong storms look less likely, now. But the Storm team will monitor those chances closely.
