News 2 Know: Dorian batters Bahamas, mother charged in connection with daughter's death and more

Good evening from It’s Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019.

We hope you had a great Labor Day weekend! Let's kick off the day with a look at this morning's top headlines.


Highs today reached 98F officially and we're at least that hot tomorrow. Look for 100F by Thursday! Lows overnight settle into the 74-76 range. The upside is that the humidity is down thanks to an east wind. Not much rain chance because of that but it does feel a little better, especially after the sun goes down and in the early mornings. Check Frank's full forcast for more.

Go to the Hurricane Headquarters section for all the updates and all the details on the tropics.
