First Alert Weather Outlook:

Expect a cold and frosty start to your Tuesday. Temps will be right around 10 degrees when you wake up, and Brian says there’s a good chance for a layer of frost on your windshield, so give yourself time to get that cleared before you head to work. The good news: we should get above freezing today for the first time since Saturday night! Highs should be around 40 degrees today. FIRST ALERT: Christmas weekend looks like it’s going to be soggy.

Making Headlines:

Complete loss: Fire crews from several districts worked to put out a fire in Stoddard County overnight. It started at the Puxico Livestock Auction company, just north of Puxico on MO-51. The Bloomfield Fire Chief says the flames were so intense, crews had to keep their distance.

Under investigation: Formal charges are expected at anytime in connection with a deadly shooting in Massac County. Police took 61 year old Alan Stephens into custody in connection to the death of his wife, who police say died at their home.

Foreign attack: Police are still looking for answers this morning after a truck ran into a Christmas market filled with people in Germany Monday, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others in a suspected terror attack. Berlin police said the attack was done on purpose.

Looking for answers: A man with a shotgun was detained after he fired into the air outside the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, the Turkish capital. No one was hurt. The attack came just hours after Ambassador Andrei Karlov was shot dead.
