Winter is here!

Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for FOX6 News this evening.

Freeze warning!

Dangerously cold weather is rolling in tonight. We are just below freezing right now and we're dropping a few degrees every hour. We'll have the latest forecast, school delays and advice to deal with frozen pipes.

Baby abandoned

A newborn baby abandoned outside a Jefferson County home is now safe but the teen mother faces possible charges. We'll explain how investigators learned about the mother and how the baby ended up in the arms of a neighbor.

Major drug arrests

The U.S. Attorney's Office announces five additional arrests in a major drug trafficking ring in Jefferson County. We'll have the full story tonight at 5.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 on FOX6 News. Watch us on air, online at FoxAlabamaLive.com or through the WBRC News app.
