(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Monday, Feb. 3.

First Alert Forecast

We’ll have a warm start to the morning with temps ranging in the 40s and 50s with partly cloudy skies.

Lisa Michaels says partly cloudy skies today will turn mostly cloudy by the late afternoon.

There is a very small chance of an isolated shower during the afternoon as clouds start to increase. Expect another very warm day with high temps in the 60s.

Tonight, our first system will move up from the south bringing rain and storms through Tuesday.

There may be some gusty winds, but the severe threat remains to the south of the Heartland. As a front moves through heading into Wednesday morning, temps will rapidly drop into the 30s.

Leftover rain could chance over to snow in our northern counties. A second round of rain moves in Wednesday afternoon through Thursday.

Total rainfall amounts look to be the highest in the Bootheel, western Kentucky and Tennessee around two to two-point-five inches. Isolated flooding will be a concern.
