We're keeping an eye on tonight's storms and Friday's snow chances

Good evening from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom. This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're following for you tonight.

Watching the weather

So just how much white stuff are we going to see around here 24 hours from now? That's the question that's emptying bread and milk shelves in groceries around Birmingham tonight but J-P Dice says he's confident we're talking about less than an inch of snow by the time this system moves through, much of that won't fall until after rush hour tomorrow. Don't let your guard down on the severe weather threat tonight before the snow, so we've got team coverage with Josh Gauntt in Hale County where they're under a tornado watch tonight, and John Huddleston is in Cullman where they're preparing to treat the roads before the snow arrives.

School bus troubles

You saw the video of a Birmingham City School bus dodging downed railroad crossing guards first on WBRC FOX6 News, tonight we're getting the first comments from Birmingham's superintendent. On WBRC FOX6 News at 10 we'll hear why she's concerned and where she thinks her system's investigation is going.

Securing your home

And given the crime surge we've seen in the metro area since the start of the year, a lot of us are taking a hard look at how secure your home is and tonight I've found a vulnerability you probably didn't even know your home has. On WBRC FOX6 News at 10 I'll show you how crooks could exploit it, and a quick and easy way to protect yourself and your home.
