Hope your holiday weekend if off to a beautiful start. WAFF's Brad Travis is prepping his Easter finery and it doesn't include an umbrella! Great news-finally. If you're planning an Easter Egg Hunt or family picnic tomorrow or Sunday, check here for the specific forecast in your area.

Pink may be the color you'll see a lot of this weekend, but many teachers or support personnel with Huntsville City Schools don't want to see it. Pink slips will likely go out the first part of next week. At last night's school board meeting, 154 non-tenured teachers were cut from the rolls, only 50 will remain. Today, no one knows who will be kept or cut. However, the teachers who will be cut will continue working through the end of the school year.

A 13 year old Madison County teen is in serious condition at Huntsville Hospital today after sheriff's deputies say she crashed the stolen car she was driving into an 18 wheeler. The young teen was reported as a runaway last night. Deputies tell us she stole a vehicle and collided with an 18 wheeler at Highway 53 and Old Railroad Bed Road. The driver of the rig was not injured.

A rig carrying liquid laxatives flipped and blocked traffic just off the I-65 interchange. The driver wasn't hurt, the mess has been cleaned up and traffic is moving again.

Ronnie Gilley says he offered millions of dollars to state legislators to support pro-gambling legislation and pled guilty to half the charges against him in federal court this morning. Gilley won't start his prison sentence until tomorrow morning.

Lots more news you don't want to miss tonight. Mark and I will see you at 5,
