You're sitting in the driver's seat with me here on the way into work. And yes, it was pouring. Now, I'm not a meteorologist (and I try not to play one on TV), but Storm Tracker Doppler Radar this morning's looking a lot like yesterday morning. Our resident morning meteorologist, David Ernst, is tracking the storms for you. Join me, and we'll find out together how long we're going to see this. http://bit.ly/GSwBfq
In the news, a shooting overnight injured a man on Holmes Avenue. http://bit.ly/1xcqU6c Muriel Bailey is gathering all the info on that. She's also updating a Jackson County man's murder case.
