Our WVLT First Alert Weather Day begins Monday as a cold front pushes into the region. Pockets of heavy rain, gusty winds, and a few isolated stronger storms are possible. This front pushes into the Platuea around 11 a.m. and moves out of our area completely by 5 p.m. The rain doesn’t look super heavy, but we’ll see widespread wind gusts up to 40-50 mph.

We’ll dry out Tuesday into most of the day on Wednesday with highs remaining in the mid to upper 60s to the lower 70s by Wednesday.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we are tracking an unsettled weather pattern with a stretch of rainy weather starting late Wednesday through Friday. We should dry out by the weekend.
