Time to decide

Good Tuesday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles.

It's 46 degrees as you get things moving this morning. We had enough on Sunday, but more rain and thunderstorms are heading our way. Meteorologist Julia Weiden will let us know when it's expected to hit our area in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, more rain could create even more problems for travelers, especially on Highway 49 south of Jackson. Several parts of that corridor are closed and we'll let you know where you need to detour, at the top of the hour.

Plus, Jackson voters have a big decision in front of them today. Depending on how the voting goes, tonight we may know who will succeed the late Chokwe Lumumba as the next mayor of Mississippi's capital city. On the morning show professor and political analyst Dr. D'andra Orey will join us live with his breakdown of the election.

Plus, a family in Yazoo City is coping with the loss of a nine-year-old girl. We'll bring you more on that story in the WLBT AM Report.

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