After a difficult battle with dementia, Patt Summitt, the winningest college basketball coach, has died at age 64. According to a statement made by her son, Summitt died "peacefully this morning" in Knoxville. 

Local reaction to SCOTUS abortion ruling

A United States Supreme Court decision on abortion rights in Texas will have a major impact here in Alabama. By a 5-3 count, the court ruled a Texas law unconstitutional. The law forced abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and required clinics to meet some hospital-like standards.

David: Mostly Sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 80s 

Isolated showers and storms are possible this morning, and there could be a few foggy spots as well. Thus far, fog has not been too widespread. But, isolated pockets of dense fog are possible especially if you saw heavy rain yesterday.
