Keep the umbrella handy

Keep the umbrella handy Tuesday because rain showers can be expected through the day. Temperatures didn’t cool off a whole lot overnight and most are starting this morning in the low-to-mid 50s. In case you were wondering, that’s warmer than the average high for this time of year! These mild readings will hold steady this morning as rain showers continue into the Valley from the west.


Scottsboro police searching for vandals

Scottsboro police are on a manhunt for the person or persons who vandalized an unfinished home. Workers were almost done with construction on the home when the property owners said vandals walked in and spray-painted vulgar words, swastikas, depictions of private body parts and racial slurs throughout the home.
