First Alert Forecast: Big changes ahead
Use extra caution this morning as you head out the door Friday; expect mostly cloudy skies outside of the fog to round out the work week. (Source: WLBT)

Friday started off on a chilly and gloomy note with plenty of fog causing road issues across the area. Expect cloudy conditions to persist through the rest of the day, but rain chances should shift east of our area as the disturbance along the Gulf Coast moves away from the region.

Expect a mix of clouds and sun this weekend with high temperatures lifting back into the low-mid 60s Saturday afternoon, near 70° by Sunday afternoon. Although we’ll stay dry both days, another cold front will swing through the state Monday, bringing with it rain and thunderstorms. Some of these storms could be strong-severe, so be sure to check back in for further forecast updates! MUCH colder air moves in behind this front, leaving us with morning lows in the upper 20s Wednesday and Thursday morning, and highs only in the upper 40s/lower 50s Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon!

First Alert Forecast: foggy Friday; mild, quiet weekend
