From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning
Did you get any sleep overnight or did the storms wake you up? We had some nasty weather blow through, but has it blown all the way through? Our folks have been in the 9Storm Center all night and we'll bring you what you need to know as you wake up and get going. Plus, happy session! The legislative session begins today, meaning 85 days of fun. We'll break down some of the big issues for you and talk with WAFB political analyst Jim Engster about what to expect. Because of those heavy rains, many roadways are still wet. Drivers are urged to use extra caution and take a look at our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
