It is Thursday, Aug. 4, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

No storms on the horizon for your Thursday, for a change! But that means the heat and the humidity crank up even more. Expect high’s today in the low 90s with the heat index hitting 100-105. Don’t count out storms for the week just yet. Friday brings a good chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon. FIRST ALERT: Brian says the weekend looks “unsettled” which means it could be stormy, but at least it will a bit cooler.

In the storm's path: A group from Farmington, Mo. are in Belize on a mission trip, and now they're in the path of Hurricane Earl.

Officer moved to new facility: The Ballwin police officer shot in the line of duty last month has been moved to an out of state rehab facility. He got quite a send-off.

Police helicopter emergency landing: The Kansas City Police Department's helicopter made an emergency landing last night.

Political Soda: Hillary's Blue Raspberry Liberal Limeade or Donald's Strawberry Peach Populist Punch? The company behind the soda pop is tracking which flavor sells more as an unofficial poll to gauge voters' tastes.
