Humid Too A weak stationary front situated to our north will combine with the heating of the sun Thursday to help ignite a couple more thunderstorms across the valley. Friday looks to be the most active in the afternoon and early nighttime thunderstorm department, so heads up on the way out the door. In time, this stationary front will dissipate, allowing for less thunderstorm activity later this weekend. However, the front will be replaced by another one by the middle of next week. These fronts do not have enough gas in the tank to drive a less humid air mass into the region, but they will be close enough to enhance thunderstorm activity again. This will be especially true from Tuesday onward next week. It will also take the edge off the recent high heat. Stay tuned.

(WRDW/WAGT) -- You've probably seen the pictures all over your social media feed, everyone making themselves look old or young through the Face-App. It seems harmless and pretty entertaining but are you exposing your privacy? News 12 is on your side asking that question. It's a funny app and we had a good laugh in the newsroom. We tried it out before reading the fine print and it turns out it can be dangerous, especially when the app developer is from another country. "It's something as harmless as taking an old photo of yourself but I think at the same time it's always smart to be conscious especially in the days of social media, you have to be conscious of what you're sharing, what you're putting out there," said Alex Mende, a law student.

(WRDW/WAGT) -- The water is warm and the fish are biting. Albert Moody, a local guide on the lake says, "fishing is great right now. Everyone seems to be catching a lot of fish". One of the factors for great fishing right now is fish habitat created by the Corps. The Corps just released the coordinates on Clarks Hill Lake where they dropped 400 Christmas Trees. All the trees were collected last winter and spread out to 8 locations in deep water and along the bank. Trees were added to 4 deep water habitats at Hawe Creek, Murry Creek, Shriver Creek, and Bussey Point. Trees were also added to 4 bank fishing locations at Scotts Ferry, Clarks Hill Park, West Dam Park, and Cherokee 47 Bridge. Most of the fish habitat maintained by the Corps is marked by buoys.
