Noticeably cooler temperatures this morning

Friday morning is noticeably colder across the Valley, with many of you waking up in the low-to-mid 30s, which is average for this time of year. There won't be any rain showers to dodge this morning, but if you parked outside there may be some frost you’ll need to scrape before you can hit the road. Highs will be limited to the mid-to-upper 40s and this will be the coolest day of the upcoming week.

We hope you'll join Margo Gray, Trent Butler and David Ernst for WAFF 48 News this morning. Remember, you can always watch online at or by tapping "Watch Newscasts" on your WAFF News mobile app.
