FIRST ALERT: Coldest day of the week today

It is Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

When you wake up on Tuesday morning it will be a little cooler. In fact, today will be the coldest day of the week, but it will be dry. You’ll need to keep the jacket zipped at lunchtime, but some of us in the Heartland will see some sunshine peeking through the clouds. FIRST ALERT: There’s an end in sight. A warming trend will increase temps to the 50’s by the end of the week.

Making Headlines:

Vulnerable or not: Scientists behind a "Doomsday Clock" that measures the likelihood of a global cataclysm are set to announce today whether civilization is any closer or farther from disaster. 

Wanted: The Poplar Bluff Police Department asks for the public's help finding a Broseley man accused of leading police on a chase, assaulting an officer and stealing a car. Police are looking for Jeffery Matthew Vest, 31, who is wanted on several charges. 

Push for more: Members of the Responsible Budget Coalition in southern Illinois will deliver a report describing the “State of our State” at a press conference today in Carbondale. Members of the Coalition say the Governor and General Assembly have failed to put a budget first that chooses revenue, which they say has weakened southern Illinois families and communities. 

In the light: The power is back on in the area near Oaks Road in McCracken County after a car caused severe damage to a power pole. According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department, the single-vehicle crash happened just after 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 25.
