Cullman prayer caravan meeting; State Department issues new orders

Throw those feet on the floor and hop out of bed! Tuesday's here, so let's get right to it.

Today, Cullman County superintendent Billy Coleman will talk about accusations made by the Freedom From Religion Foundation regarding a prayer caravan. That caravan is scheduled for this Saturday. A group of people, including Coleman, will go into Cullman County schools and pray for the children. At 5:00, Christine Pae (twitter: @christinepae) takes a closer look at what FFRF is saying they will do if the event is not canceled. Later today, we'll also be streaming  Coleman's 2PM press conference live on our website, waff.com.

This morning, we have the latest on the suspected terror plots that have forced the closure of U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. At 6:02, we have an update on new orders from the State Department.

And sports fans, we have a little something for you too. At 6:12, how the crowd reacted to Alex Rodriguez's first at bat since the MLB announced his 211 game suspension after an investigation into his use of performance enhancing drugs.

I just check with WAFF 48 meteorologist Jeff Castle and he says we won't see much of a change weather wise today, but he's keeping an eye on increased rain chances later this week. He has your full forecast in your Weather on the Tens.

Hope you'll let us help you get your day started! We hit the air in half an hour.
