What we're working on Friday afternoon

Good afternoon,

Here's a look at what's trending on http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/ and what we're working on today.


It has been a chilly start to our Friday but thanks to the mix of sun and clouds expected, we will warm into the upper 40s to lower 50s region-wide this afternoon. Through the evening we are looking at temperatures dropping into the 40s and then into the 30s for overnight lows. We will keep with mostly clear skies overnight but as we push into the weekend we will see warmer afternoon highs but we are also tracking some weekend rain chances.

TODAY: Mostly sunny. Winds: W 5-15 mph. High: 51.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Winds: SW 5 mph. Low: 35.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The start to Saturday is looking sunny, but we are going to see clouds increase by our Saturday evening and overnight. We look to remain dry on our Saturday with highs back into the upper 50s. Our next rain maker will move in the region on our Sunday morning and cause a chance for some showers during the day. Highs on Sunday will warm into the lower 50s with those cloudy skies and lows will dip into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
