First Alert: Leave the jacket at home; warmer weather expected today

It is Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2015.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

If you liked yesterday, chances are good you will enjoy today's weather. However, it will be a tad warmer. On your morning commute, you may see some patchy fog. Otherwise, you can expect a mild morning opening up into a mostly sunny and warm afternoon.

Making headlines:

Under investigation: Cape Girardeau police are calling a late night shooting a homicide. When officers arrived, they found a man dead at the scene with bullet wounds. Now, they're searching for a suspect.

Accidental shooting: A Fort Campbell soldier was shot and killed during a training exercise. The incident is under investigation, but initial indications show the shooting was accidental.

Early release: Federal prisons across the country will soon see their inmate populations decline. That's because of changes to certain drug laws that will allow 6,000 inmates get out of jail sooner than they expected. 

What's trending:

Rare sight: A photo of what appears to be a mountain lion in Obion County is getting a lot of talk. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is investigating, but so far, they haven't found any tracks, hair, or other physical evidence from the scene.
