First Alert Weather: keep those summer clothes out; warmer today than usual

It's Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

A beautiful day is on tap for your Tuesday, with sunny skies and highs in the 80s. In fact, Brian’s First Alert Forecast shows today, tomorrow and Thursday could all be considered a “pick of the week”. You may need a sweatshirt for your morning workout, or have the kiddos wear a light jacket at the bus stop. They won’t need it on the way home, though.  

Making Headlines: 

New jobs: The Missouri National Guard plans to add about 400 full- and part-time military police and transportation jobs in the state. Some of those guardsmen will form a new transportation battalion, which will be split between Fredericktown and Farmington.

Safe and sound: A missing 81-year-old woman has been found, according to the Calloway County Sheriff's Office. Jones was located on Monday, Oct. 5 in Nashville, Tenn. in good health.

Deadly crash: Police say a pedestrian died after he was hit by an elementary school bus in St. Louis.  No word yet on how the incident occurred.

Dangerous situation: At least 10 people have died after historic rainfall in South Carolina. As of Monday evening, the South Carolina Department of Transportation said nearly 550 roads and bridges were closed as rescues and evacuations.
