Good morning, it is Monday, April 9.

First Alert Weather

We’re dropping into to the thirties, this morning. So we’re off to a cold start. Brian Alworth says it’s quiet on the precipitation front, though. We could see high temperatures in the 50’s today. We’ll see mostly sun in the morning, but turning cloudier by the evening.

We’ll get into a warming trend by the middle of the week. Expect temperatures in the 70s by Thursday.

The rain returns just in time for the weekend. The rain returns Friday and we could even see some severe weather but the Storm Team is keeping an eye on that.
