Sunrise to Go: Monday, March 24

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1: Say it ain't SNOW! - Highs today in the mid 40s, 20s tonight, and temps struggle to hit 40 tomorrow. Accumulation is possible on grassy surfaces overnight/Tuesday morning, with isolated slick spots on bridges/overpasses.

2: Huge Win! - Andrew Harrison scored 20 points, twin brother Aaron had 19 and Kentucky ended Wichita State's pursuit of perfection Sunday when Fred VanVleet's potential game-winning 3-pointer missed in a 78-76 victory in the NCAA tournament.

3: Sweet 16: Luke Hancock scored 21 points and defending national champion Louisville shrugged off a cold shooting performance to beat Saint Louis 66-51 on Saturday and advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament for the third straight year.

4: Missing Plane - The FAA is issuing an alert for an aircraft with one person on board that may be missing south of Knoxville in an area near Calderwood Lake. According to the FAA, the flight left French Lick, Indiana Sunday night, but never reached its intended destination of Canon, Georgia.

5: Roving Teens - Police are searching for a group of teens accused of several violent and damaging incidents in downtown Louisville. Louisville Metro Chief Steve Conrad says at least six people were assaulted Saturday night within a span of two hours. Some were taken to University Hospital for treatment. Some of the victims were listed in serious condition.

6: Body - A mother of two young girls was shaken up after finding a woman's dead body while throwing out the trash Saturday morning. The body was behind her fence at her home in the 1200 block of Phyllis Avenue, just blocks from Churchill Downs. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirmed the deceased was Angela Pilkerton, 53, of Louisville. Her autopsy supported claims by the LMPD Homicide Unit that foul play was involved, but an exact cause of death could not be determined.

7: Fire - Fire damaged the Boston Community Center in a small town where neighbors use the building on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. As soon as firefighters arrived, they salvaged quilts, ceramics and baskets senior citizens make and sometimes sell to financially support the Boston Community Center.

8: Announcement: Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is expected to make an announcement today about the rumors of Walmart taking over the old Phillip Morris Plant.

9: Funeral - Family and friends will say goodbye to the teen who died after being stabbed on a TARC bus. The funeral for Me'Quale Offutt will take place at 11:00 a.m. Monday at Portland Memorial Baptist Church.

10: Memorial - Police scanners and radios in Louisville went silent marking the time of death of an officer nine years ago. Officer Peter Alan Grignon, who died in 2005 after serving only two years with LMPD, was honored with the silence at 9:30 Sunday morning.
