(WAFF) - Two U.S. service members were killed on Thursday battling Taliban insurgents in northern Afghanistan alongside local troops, NATO said, rare combat deaths for American forces who largely handed over securing the war-torn nation to Afghan troops some two years ago. Kunduz officials later said they were investigating claims that local civilians also were killed in the fighting, possibly in a retaliatory airstrike.
Cops: Mom texted video of dead toddler during fight with dad

With a slower arrival of today's cold front, we could see yet another day of near record warm temperatures. The record high for today in Huntsville is 84° and 85° in Muscle Shoals, both set in 2012. We'll climb into the low 80s today with increasing clouds. A narrow window for a few spotty light showers will open up late this evening through around 2 a.m. Friday morning.
