    FIRST ALERT FORECAST: First day of Fall is a hot one, with a few pop up showers possible

    Friday, September 22 2017 4:48 AM EDT2017-09-22 08:48:32 GMT
    A few showers possible this afternoonA few showers possible this afternoon

    For today, we will have a few small pop up showers in the afternoon. Rain chances are at only 20%, so not everyone will see rain. Any rain we do get, will not last long. There will be plenty of passing clouds, but that won’t stop the heat. Highs today will be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s! Even though fall is officially starting today, it certainly will not feel like it! By tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end.
