A good Saturday afternoon, Tennessee Valley!
We wanted to let you know that, due to college football and NASCAR coverage this evening, there will be no WAFF 48 News at 5 or 6 this evening.
NBC Nightly News and the weekend encore episode of Wheel of Fortune will also not be seen.
If news breaks, we'll send out text and mobile alerts and post details to social media. In the meantime, here are some stories we're working on for WAFF 48 News at 10:
"Mr. Tom," as bar patrons knew him, was remembered Saturday at a service thrown by the staff of Lone Goose Saloon. Thomas Teenor was struck and killed by a vehicle while leaving the establishment just over a week ago. Police are still searching for the person responsible for hitting him.
Rocket City Lit Fest kicked off its inaugural event this weekend. Book lovers congregated at the Von Braun Center to celebrate storytelling in all its forms and help make reading accessible to all with programs targeting the removal of barriers to reading such as poverty, learning disabilities and language.
The state announced this week that dyslexia will be classified as a 'learning challenge,' meaning students with dyslexia should soon receive some much-needed help. WAFF's Jake Berent will have more on that story and speak with a family here in North Alabama about what that will mean for them.
What about your weather? Meteorologist Lauren Jones says you can expect a parade of cold fronts over the next seven days. Quiet weather starts the new work week with lows in the lower 50s and highs in the lower 80s.
A weak cold front brings extra cloud cover that night and a stray sprinkle into Tuesday morning. That front will knock temperatures back into the 70s Tuesday afternoon. A series of dry cold fronts will keep Fall-like conditions around for the entire work week, with several mornings dipping into the 40s and highs only in the lower 70s by the end of the week.
Be sure to tune in at 10 for Lauren's detailed forecast.
We hope to see you then!
