(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Thursday, Nov. 7.
Widespread rain continues to fall across the Heartland.
Lisa Michaels says this will last the first half of today as a cold front pushes through.
Cold air will quickly move in possibly allowing some of our northern counties to see the rain transition into snow, but no accumulation is expected.
Rain will end by the afternoon with clouds slowly clearing out by the evening.
High temperatures today will occur during the very start of the day in the 30s and 40s.
They will be dropping due to the cold air behind this front. Gusty winds as high as 30mph will make wind chill values feel like we are in the low to mid 30s all day.
We will stay dry on Friday and over the weekend, but all eyes are on our next arctic system that moves in on Monday which as of now will bring rain and our first possible accumulative snowfall of the year.
