Home visit Blitz

Teachers making home visits may sound like a nightmare to some students, but it's become a tradition in Henderson.  And later this morning Henderson teachers will be making the rounds again for the annual Home Visit Blitz.  Nicole is live with the details.

Rain, the back to Summer

An area of low pressure is on the way bringing a change to our cool weather pattern. This will result in widespread showers and thunderstorms, mainly this afternoon and night.  Severe weather is not expected, but heavy rainfall is possible.  Many areas will receive 1-2" by the time the rain moves out Wednesday morning.

So enjoy your Tuesday, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
