First Alert: Winter is back, prepare for the cold

First Alert forecast 9 p.m. 4/16

(KFVS) - Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade says well below average temperatures continue across the Heartland with clouds and snow flurries from time to time east of the Mississippi River.

These clouds will move out of the area this evening and winds will die down. 

Temperatures today will only climb into the 40s and 50s today with breezy conditions making it feel even colder.  Clouds will slowly clear from west to east with a few flurries likely.

Tonight will be another cold night and freeze warnings and frost advisories are in effect for much of the area.

Warmer weather is expected for the rest of the workweek.  Rain chances return late Saturday.
