Another bitterly cold morning as the Heartland wakes up with temps in the teens. And don’t expect the sun. It should be overcast most of the day. And winter weather will be moving in by sunset, including snow and ice. First Alert: Wednesday’s commute looks to be messy, and we may see some school’s call off classes.

Making Headlines:

Early morning blaze: Firefighters were dispatched to a home on Jonesboro Road in Massac County, Ill. on Tuesday morning in response to a fire. According to fire crews, a detached garage caught on fire.

Under investigation: The Reynolds County Sheriff's Department is now investigating the death of a woman as a homicide. Sheriff Tom Volner reports the body of 63-year-old Sharon Nelson was found about 100 yards from the Black River south of Lesterville on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Due in court: A Chicago man will head back to federal court for a sentencing hearing today after pleading guilty to making bomb threats towards Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Derrick Dawon Burns admitted in August 2015 to sending four threatening letters to students, employees and campus police.

Returning home: An army veteran returned home for the first time since he was shot and paralyzed after a Cardinals game in downtown St. Louis. Chris Sanna was celebrating his mother’s birthday at the game when he was shot during an armed robbery.

Search and rescue: Law enforcement officers and volunteers continue to search for Noah Chamberlin, a 2-year-old from Pinson, Tennessee, who has been missing since Thursday. At this point, investigators still believe Noah will be found alive.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
