Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July on this Thursday from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

Nice to start to America's 237th birthday as we wake up to 71 degrees. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will let us know when and where any holiday rain is expected in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening today, if you're not lighting up fireworks or the grill at home there's plenty of July 4th celebrations to get into today. We'll have a full rundown of all the celebrations in the metro.

Plus, the holiday takes on a different tone for folks waking up without their home this morning. A dozen families lost what they called home when their apartments at Lakeshore Point went up in flames Wednesday.

And, it's the Arab Spring 2.0, as Egypt ousts the president that took over for Hosni Mubarak.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now you can find us on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Independence Day!
