PELHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Police have filed charges against a man who barricaded himself in the attic of a Pelham townhouse last week.

    I’m tracking cloudy skies to the east of I-65 and mostly sunny skies to the west of I-65. This is impacting temperatures already and will result in highs in the middle 70s west and upper 60s east. I do expect thinning clouds this afternoon from west to east.
