As you know, rain and the morning commute don't always mix. So traffic reporter Tonya Rivens will have the latest updates on how the commute is shaping up through the morning, on both the interstates and secondary roads.

BREAKING NEWS: We are following a homicide just outside uptown Charlotte. It happened on Summit Avenue. We have a crew on the scene at this very moment. As we get details we will break in with updates on the air.

There is going to be a lot to cover so I have to go.

We're live now. Tune in!

Christine
