Cold temps, Hurricane Sandy, Mid-Southerners headed to East Coast, MLK billboard Controversy

Good morning and welcome to a chilly chilly Monday.

It's 41 degrees in Midtown, upper 30s in the rural areas. High of 57 and sunshine today. We get warmer as the week continues. We have updates throughout the morning on WMC-TV5. Also Hurricane Sandy is barreling down on the east coast and it could meet up with cold frigid air from Canada making for a 'superstorm.' We're also talking about people in the Mid-South headed to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy...Ron Childers has all the details on our weather and Hurricane Sandy all morning long.

The San Francisco Giants won their 2nd World Series title in 3 years. Hear from Giants pitcher and Mid-South Native Matt Cain this morning as he spoke about the sweep.

Also the campaign trail is a little more quiet today with Hurricane Sandy forcing changes. Details from the Presidential campaigns this AM

Plus an MLK billboard controversy. The billboard says Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a republican and the person to put up the billboard has evidence to back it up. Details on that on WMC-TV5.
