Good morning!

Only one more day until the long Memorial Day weekend and it's going to get HOT!

Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that we can expect partly to mostly sunny skies today with highs climbing into the mid 80s. For a complete seven-day forecast to help plan your weekend, tune-in starting 4 AM for the FOX19 Morning Weather Show.

NKY DRIVERS: if your morning commute usually takes you north or south on 71/75 in Florence, you need to pick a different route. All lanes on NB 71/75 are closed just north of the Turfway exit and all SB lanes are closed at Donaldson due to poles and wires being down in the roadway. Stephanie Woods will keep you up-to-date on this situation as well as traffic conditions all over the tri-state starting at 4:30 AM.

Also in Boone County today, if you see a ton of emergency vehicles roaming around - don't panic! They'll all be taking part in a mass casualty exercise at the Boone County Fire Training Center on Conrad Lane. Rob and Sheila will have more on this story at 5 AM.

The Highlands High School teacher accused of having sex with a student is free on bond this morning after she plead not guilty in court yesterday. Andrea Connors is charged with felony child sex abuse and is scheduled to have a pre-trial hearing on June 26. You can hear more on this story on the FOX19 Morning News during the 6 AM hour.

American Idol finally announced its 11th season winner last night in an emotional season finale. I won't ruin the surprise through a newsletter for those of you who have it saved on DVR, but if you missed it and can't wait to hear who here! :)
