(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Monday, April 16.

First Alert Forecast

It feels like winter outside. Current wind chills are in the 20s with some flurries. Laura Wibbenmeyer says it will be chilly all day.

Some places might not get out of the 40s and some feels-like temperatures won’t get out of the 30s. Clouds will clear from West to East, later today.

That clearing will make for a bitterly cold Tuesday morning. Frost and freeze advisories will be in effect for tonight and tomorrow morning because the wind will let up and the temps will drop to around freezing in northern parts of the Heartland.

Several dry and mild days during the work week will follow. Rain and clouds will be back in time for the weekend.
