First Alert Weather 10 p.m. 1/17/2020

(KFVS) - Scattered light rain and sleet showers have been moving across the Heartland, but little impact has been felt.

Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade says temperatures are warming above freezing and this will cause precipitation to fall as rain for most areas the rest of the night. Temperatures will continue to rise overnight, with readings in the upper 40s and middle 50s by morning.

First Alert! Very gusty winds likely as the cold front moves through tomorrow morning. Could see a few isolated power outages. Charge up your devices. Spread the word.
