Ready to strike?

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

We're starting the day at 57 degrees and today's weather looks like a spring preview. Meteorologist Julia Weiden will break it down for us and let us know if we can expect any rain today in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening today, lawmakers will vote on several pieces of legislation this week.  One bill could establish law enforcement "strike teams" to combat criminal activity in high crime areas. One state legislature has his reservations about the strike teams and we'll bring you that story at the top of the hour.

Plus, in breaking news from last night a co-pilot for an Ethiopian Airlines jet locked the main pilot out of the cockpit and hi-jacked the plane. We'll tell you why the pilot did it in the WLBT AM Report.

And, the Florence couple who were killed in a plane crash in Alabama over the weekend are remembered by friends and family.

Those stories and much more are heading your way.

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