(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Tuesday, March 20.

First Alert Forecast

There will be rain switching over to snowfall throughout the morning.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says travel impacts will be minimal, but there could be pockets of heavy snow and slushy accumulations in our far eastern counties.

Temperatures will stay above freezing the entire morning. The rest of the day will be cold and windy with high temperatures only in the 40s and a stiff northwest breeze blowing between 20-30 mph.

The next few days will be dry. It will be cool, tomorrow, but temperatures will get near 60 degrees by Thursday afternoon.

An unsettled pattern starts Thursday night. The models show a discrepancy on the details between Friday and Tuesday. Rain chances look the highest on Saturday. Temperatures will probably be mild, however.
