Wreck shuts down NB lanes of Parkway traffic

Emergency crews are on the scene of a single-car wreck on S. Memorial Parkway at Green Cove Road. Huntsville police have shut down northbound lanes of traffic from Green Cove to Hobbs Island Road. Use caution if traveling in this area. We have a crew heading to the scene right now.


1 in custody after car chase, wreck in Madison Co.

One man is in custody after leading police on a car chase through Madison County early Tuesday morning. Madison County Sheriff's deputies were originally called to a home for a domestic violence situation when the man fled the home. Deputies chased him until he wrecked on Ryland Pike, then running on foot. Deputies caught up with the man a short time later and took him into custody.


Patchy fog affecting areas of the Valley

This morning will start out with plenty of low cloud cover and areas of fog for some of you in the Tennessee Valley. Be sure to allot yourself a few extra minutes for that morning commute if fog is affecting your visibility. Temperatures are starting out in the low-to-mid 50s but warming into the 60s for this afternoon.


We hope you'll join Margo Gray, Trent Butler and David Ernst for WAFF 48 News this morning. Remember, you can always watch online at WAFF.com/Live or by tapping "Watch Newscasts" on your WAFF News mobile app.
