A former corrections officer sentenced to jail for his involvement in the Dannemora prison escape will be a free man this morning. Ex-Corrections officer Gene Palmer was arrested back in June 20-15, after court documents say that he provided paint and tools to two convicted murderers. After Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility, Palmer was found giving the inmates tools while they were behind bars in exchange for paintings. Officials say Palmer also offered them access to the catwalk behind the jail cell.

A Milton driver is expected to be OK this morning after their truck went up in flames. State Police say 62-year old Rene Lafromboise lost control and drove off Route 207 in Swanton yesterday afternoon. Officials say the vehicle smashed into a nearby barn and broke a utility pole. The truck caught fire and damaged the barn. The driver admitted to falling asleep at the wheel but left the accident with minor injuries.

5} AM_WEATHER


We'll start with some AM sunshine, but then those showers moving through, west to east, and possible t-storms. More of the same on Tuesday with another, stronger cold front coming through, and some of the t-storms could be on the strong side, especially late in the day. Cooler, less humid by mid-week. A few, lingering showers early Wednesday. Then sunshine through most of Friday, when a cold front comes through late in the day with showers and possible t-storms. Right now, the weekend looks very nice with comfy temps & humidity.
