Good Friday morning, it is February 9.

First Alert Forecast

Today will be breezy, but warm. Temperatures will be in the 50’s and there will be increasing clouds throughout the day .

Gusts will top 20 mph at times. If you're making weekend plans, good news, this is the best day of the weekend.

It looks like mainly rain on Saturday. Temps will be near 50 degrees in our southern counties and near freezing in our northern counties.

The northwest Heartland is more likely to see light, freezing rain during the day.

As cold air pushes in on Saturday night and Sunday morning, we could see a change from rain to freezing rain, sleet and a little snow.

Accumulations look minor, but any freezing rain can cause slick travel.
