Morning Show Insider: Family Fun

4 things to watch for -- Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Evrod Cassimy (WDIV)

Evrod Cassimy: This was one of the best weekends I’ve had with my family. Specifically Friday night. We attended the annual Hob Nobble Gobble event at Ford Field and it did not disappoint! My kids were excited as they are every year leading up to the event. My wife had picked out their outfits and we were more than excited to see Nelly perform live! We enjoyed the delicious food, drinks and rides and got front row seats to see Nelly! Who knew he would invite my boys on stage with him to dance to the popular song Old Town Road?! They had an absolute blast and were still talking about the event the whole way home! Nelly certainly put on a great show and the event raised so much money for charity!

Reminiscing about the event is a great way to start the work week. See ya when you wake up!

All Morning -- Holiday Travel Forecast

If Tuesday is a big travel day for you or the family, it’s looking pretty good Tuesday around Metro Detroit with morning temps in the mid 30s to near 40 degrees, and light winds keep wind chills out of the equation early. We will see some sunny breaks in the clouds, but we do expect mostly cloudy skies most of the day with highs around 50°F and winds SW 5-10 mph. Rain will start moving in late Tuesday and we could even see rain and thunderstorms overnight into early Wednesday.
