From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The weather may be the headline maker today. Diane will keep you updated on conditions. Huge support is being shown for CATS. Will it be enough to help save the mass transit system? What would you like to see happen? And, one interview down, with one more to go for the EBR superintendent job. Drivers can expect wet roadways for most of the day, so be careful. A flash flood watch is in effect, so please be extra cautious on roads with standing water. You are advised to not drive through it because it could be deeper than you think. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before heading out today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route.
