Trial to begin for woman charged in a fatal hit-and-run

Obama casts Trump philosophy as one of ignorance, isolation

President Barack Obama cast Donald Trump's positions on immigration, trade and Muslims as part of an ignorance-and-isolation philosophy that the president says will lead the U.S. down the path of decline. Obama used his commencement speech Sunday at Rutgers University to tear into the presumptive Republican nominee, without ever mentioning his name.

Cloud and sun mix with temperatures in mid 70s

Temperatures are still cool this morning, although in many cases, we are a few degrees milder than yesterday morning. Readings range from the upper 40s into the mid 50s. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today with more clouds than sun by the 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.wa
