I hope you saw a little rain today …

WAVE 3 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Harned says we could see a lot more by the weekend if soon-to-be Hurricane Isaac moves up toward our area.  He'll have the just-released update on the projected path of the storm when you join Scott Reynolds and me for WAVE 3 News at 11!

In the meantime, you can download a Hurricane Tracking Chart and plot Isaac's course with the WAVE 3 Storm Tracking Team.

We're still trying to figure out what police think happened in Okolona that led to the discovery of a woman's body this morningWAVE 3's Matt McCutcheon spoke to a neighbor who says he was there when her remains were found in a garbage can.

The Jefferson County Board of Education voted to raise property taxes tonight.  WAVE 3's Katie Bauer was there for the vote and she'll bring you the debate.

Plus, hundreds of people gave everything they had this weekend for the Louisville Ironman triathlon … but race officials tell us someone had a sinister plan to get in the way of the athletes.

We'll see you for all of that at 11:00 after Grimm on NBC!
