Cap City sales tax hike

Good Monday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

It's 55 degrees this morning and if you feel some moisture falling later today it's not Michael Haynes' tears as a result of Alabama's loss to Auburn over the weekend. There is some rain in the forecast and Michael will tell us about it in his First Alert weather.

Happening now, it will be up to Jackson voters to decide whether or not they are willing to pay an additional one percent in sales tax to help pay for infrastructure. Every purchase will not be subject to the tax hike and we'll bring you the details in the WLBT AM Report.

Plus, four people are dead following a train derailment in New York. The latest on this tragic crash in a live report from NYC.

And, a same sex couple in Mississippi is now seeking a divorce. But, considering the state doesn't recognize gay marriage that is easier said than done. Details on the unprecedented case are at the top of the hour.

Plus, we'll be your guide to the best Cyber Monday deals around.

All those stories and more at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and have a great Monday.
