Good morning and welcome to Action News 5 on a fantastic Friday!!

We have bold, light, vanilla creme and gingerbread coffee flowing throughout the newsroom...almost as many flavors as people!! Whatever you're drinking join us on WMC-TV5!!

We have almost made to the weekend!! We have another warm day ahead...highs in the 90s and also high humidity...Tim Van Horn is tracking rain chances throughout the rest of the day and this weekend on WMC-TV5.

We've had a mild summer but we're going to see a triple digit heat index today. We have team coverage of the heat, humidity and what to expect all weekend long on WMC-TV5.

 

Are you the one always itchy from mosquito bites? you might be a mosquito magnet! The Smithsonian has come up with a list of what makes us attractive to these pests. We explain more on WMC-TV5.

College football season is almost here and some of you might make the trip to Oxford for the Ole Miss games. But if you don't follow the parking rules, you could be slapped with a ticket on game day, requiring you to pay some higher fines.

There has been some major flooding in Nashville this week. It has forced dozens of people to their rooftops..

We'll show you some of the video from Nashville where they have gotten as much as 7 inches in some places

You have heard about a cat having nine lives but what about a person having nine lives. This morning we're going to introduce to Erik Norrie. He has been struck by lightning, bitten by a rattlesnake, beaten up by monkeys, and most recently, attacked by a shark and he's alive to tell the tales. Hear from him this morning on WMC-TV5.

We're here and live for you!! Have a great Friday and weekend!!
