Good Friday morning, it is April 20, 2018.

First Alert Weather

This morning is going to be cold. We’ll start the day at, or below freezing.

Lisa Michaels has good news though!  Once the sun comes up, we’ll start to warm up and we’ll get plenty of sunshine.

Temperatures will still be below average, but warmer than yesterday. The wind will not be as strong as yesterday either. 

The weekend looks rainy at times. Saturday will be sunny and a little warmer than Friday. Clouds will start to build by around noon and rain will start some time Saturday night, or Sunday morning.

Some of those showers will linger into Monday morning. Then we’ll start to see a slow warm-up for next week.
