(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Tuesday, March 6.

First Alert Forecast

We’re dealing with some fog, this morning. We’ll see plenty of sun once it comes up, but that will be short-lived. Laura Wibbenmeyer says clouds and wind will take over and a wind advisory is in effect. We could see gusts of up to 40 or 50 mph.

The temperatures will start falling after sundown and we might see a few sprinkles and maybe even a few snowflakes, this evening or overnight. Our northern counties stand the biggest chances of precipitation.

Rain moves in this weekend. One long-range model shows rain for everyone…another shows us mainly dry. So you can say there are plenty of questions about the weekend forecast.
