Step in the right direction

Good Thursday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

We're starting the day at 39 degrees but it may actually feel like spring by the end of the day. Meteorologist Paul Williams will have more on that, plus a look at the potential for rain during the Easter weekend, in his First Alert Forecast.

It can be considered a step in the right direction as Jackson Police officials release stats indicating that crime is down in the Capital City compared to last year. We'll take a closer look at the numbers at the top of the hour.

Plus, the hunt for a man on the coast who evaded police in a 25-mile, high-speed chase continues today. Find out why police were running him down in the first place.

And, former South African president and global icon Nelson Mandela is back in the hospital as the 94-year-old fights for his life.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, flip over to Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday eve!
