(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Tuesday, January 12.

First Alert Weather

Some might need to break out the ice scrapers for their car windows this morning.

It is a cold and frosty start to Tuesday.

Wake-up temps are very cold in the low-to-mid 20s, with a few areas near Mt. Vernon in the teens.

This afternoon will be sunny and warmer!

Winds out of the southwest will help warm up the Heartland into the mid-to-upper 40s. Some areas in southeast Missouri could reach 50.

Tonight will be mostly clear to party cloudy with temps again dipping back into the 20s.

Sunny and warmer conditions stick around for the next few days with highs in the low 50s.

The next chance for rain, and maybe a few snowflakes, comes towards the end of the week.
