Weather Alert: Tracking storms just west of Charlotte-Mecklenburg

Good morning! It's me, Christine Nelson. Just checking in early so we can be one of the first emails you read when you wake up this morning. We have news and weather headlines we want to alert you to! You'll want to make sure to have your TV turned on to WBTV News This Morning. We're live now until 9 a.m. on WBTV and Bounce TV.

Some of you are probably getting hit with a good bit of rain as you're reading this. There's a system west of Charlotte moving to the north right now. We have the most experience morning meteorologist Al Conklin tracking the storm's every move right now. He'll even pinpoint where the storms are down to your street. We have weather alerts every 7 minutes to keep you informed.

Also, which side of the debate are you on when it comes to teacher raises? If you think teachers should get a raise you'll like this. Some Mecklenburg County commissioners say they've come up with a plan that could mean raises for teachers.

A tragic story. We have details on how a man was killed in a trench collapse in Mint Hill on Blackbird Hill Lane near Albemarle Road.

Plus, We're working to learn the identity of a 19-year-old who drowned in Gaston County at Mountain Island Lake.
