It is Wednesday, Aug. 17.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Most of the Heartland will get a chance to dry out today, in fact come of us may even see the sun! Not everyone will dodge a rain shower, though. The Bootheel and western Kentucky will still see some rain this morning and possibly this afternoon. Heading out the door, expect a humid, mild morning with temps in the 70s. By lunchtime we should heat up to about 80 degrees. Brian’s looking forward to the weekend which looks very wet. FIRST ALERT: We may get a taste of fall next week.

Abduction investigation: A Mexican official is confirming that the 29-year-old son of imprisoned drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been kidnapped by a rising drug cartel. The incident is raising alarms of a possible wave of bloodshed.
