Heat continues; First Alert Forecast shows possible t-storms later

It's Aug. 4, 2015.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Get those outdoor chores done today, but make sure to apply and reapply that sunscreen. Brian says today looks like a carbon copy of yesterday with lots of sun, heat and humidity. The biggest difference today: a better chance for a pop up shower or two this afternoon, and more rain is on the way.

Making Headlines:

Hostage Situation:  Miner police report when officers showed up to a hotel and they found a man holding a knife to a woman's throat, saying he would kill her on Monday evening. That man is now behind bars, but investigators are still looking for more information.

Motel Fire: The cause of fire at a motel in Kennett is still under investigation. No one was hurt but when emergency crews arrived, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming out from the central part of the building.

Armed and Dangerous: The Murray Police Department is looking for an armed and dangerous man after the body of a 61-year-old man inside a home.

What's trending:

Nostalgia meets front page headlines: Ty, the company that brought you Beanie Babies, is producing a Cecil the Lion plush in memory of the now famous lion recently killed in Zimbabwe.
