Stormy weather is once again making for a rude wake-up call for some in the area. Overnight storms have pounded the St. Louis area - but we're not being spared. Some severe storms are going through our northern counties - and there's a good chance many more of us will see some rain this morning. Brian was already on the air around 4:30 with a thunderstorm warning and will be cutting-in as soon as any other warnings are issued.

This morning on The Breakfast Show Jim and Lauren also have new details about a plane crash in Libya that has killed at least 100 people.
There was also a late night crash in Wayne County, IL about 3 miles south of Fairfield that injured 6 local teens.
Today there will also be a big announcement coming out of the University of Illinois as they name their new president.
And in the Gulf BP has begun lowering a smaller containment box onto the wellhead to try stopping the flow of oil.
This morning we'll be showing you 2 stories that should have you talking today. First - Walgreens is about to start selling home DNA kits that could show you what illnesses you may be vulnerable for getting. But is too much information a bad thing? Second - do you know you may have a deadly design flaw in every vehicle you own? That's what one family says about front seats that recline too far - we'll show you why at 5:45 this morning.
And it's Wednesday and that means Lauren is putting something to the Does it Work test. Today - it's Frog Tape. Can this green tape prevent paint leaks better than traditional blue painter's tape? You'll see on The Breakfast Show around 6:15 - but if you just can't wait or missed it, you can check it out on line.
And in case you missed last night's Best Teacher award - check it out here - Laura Wibbenmeyer is in Ste. Genevieve for the big presentation.
Thanks again for taking the time to check in with us this morning - I hope you have a great Wednesday!
