Traffic headaches at 40/240 flyover; Tennessee Brewery opens; downtown apartment fire

What we're working on

Guns at school. We are looking into why an 18-year-old brought a semi-automatic gun to Westwood High School. The gun incident comes just one day after a fight between two girls at Wooddale High school ended with a stabbing. What's going on with all the violence? We are in search of answers on WMC Action News 5.

You should give yourself a little extra time today for your morning commute, especially if your route includes taking the I-40/I-240 flyover. Construction will be going on there for months, meaning big delays. We'll explain the delays and how you can avoid them this morning.

Tennessee Brewery: The Revival opens today! Many outdoor parties were held last year in an effort to save the historic building. The outdoor parties are back, this time put on by the man who saved the building from demolition and is planning a multi-million dollar renovation. 

New details are coming out this morning after fire forced dozens of people out of a downtown high-rise apartment building on Main Street.

And finally, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is in Memphis today. We'll explain what brought him  here.

Weather update

It is warm this morning and it's expected to get into the 80s later today. It will feel very comfortable outside, but we could see some severe weather coming into the Mid-South later this afternoon and into this evening. Details on the forecast today and into this weekend with weather on the 5s on WMC every 10 minutes.
