LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Here are five stories WAVE Country will be talking about today:

1. Rain ends: It's a rainy morning in WAVE Country, but by afternoon, we'll see sunshine. WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team meteorologists Christie Dutton and Brian Goode are monitoring the potential for severe weather late tomorrow night.

2. Charity balloon race: The Kentucky Derby Festival has canceled this morning's scheduled Great Balloon Charity Race due to rain. Local celebrities were to participate with the winner to receive $1,000 to donate to their favorite charity. As of right now, the rest of the 2017 Great BalloonFest will be held as scheduled.

3. Double shooting: Two men were found with gunshot wounds Wednesday night along the Salem Bypass just west of State Road 60. One of the men died at a Salem hospital. The other victim was flown to University of Louisville with life-threatening injuries. Police believe there was at least one shooter. There are no suspects in the case, but investigators say they do not believe the general public's safety is at risk.

4. Broadway homicide: No arrests have been made after a man was shot while sitting on the front porch of a home on West Broadway in the Shawnee neighborhood. His body was in the yard when police arrived Wednesday afternoon. School buses had to be rerouted so children wouldn't see the crime scene.

5. JCPS warning: School leaders are warning parents about a hot new Netflix show called 13 Reasons Why. The show chronicles a high school student who commits suicide and leaves behind 13 tapes for specific people whom she blames for her death. JCPS officials are afraid the show romanticizes suicide and urges parents to have candid conversations with their children who have watched it. They've also offered guidance on suicide risk factors, warning signs and prevention. Click here for a list of resources.
