Weather wise, isolated storms will greet South Florida for the morning before more wet weather makes its way to the area by the end of the week and into the weekend.

No. 1 - Two Transportation Security Administration officers have been suspended after officials say a noose was found at Miami International Airport.

In a statement Tuesday, TSA officials said the "offensive display" was found in a non-public baggage screening area at the airport and was immediately reported by officers to TSA management. A photo posted on social media showed the noose display, which included what appeared to be two gorilla dolls.

No. 2 - Authorities have temporarily closed a South Florida daycare where a 2-year-old child was found dead inside a transport van parked outside.

Officials with Broward County’s Child Care Licensing and Enforcement division announced Tuesday that they have closed Ceressa's Daycare and Preschool in Oakland Park while the investigation into the death of Noah Sneed is completed. BSO investigators say Sneed was found inside the van around 3:30 p.m. Monday.

No. 3 - A viewing is scheduled for fallen Broward Sherriff’s Deputy Benjamin Nimtz on Wednesday evening at Fred Hunter's in Hollywood, and a service will follow the next morning at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.

Authorities say Nimtz had his lights and siren activated as he headed to a domestic violence call in Deerfield Beach last weekend. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No. 4 - A local group of volunteers are going above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of dozens of dogs.

More than 30 dogs were rescued from the controversial Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China and they’re getting groomed right here in South Florida while hoping to find a forever home.

No. 5 - The signature domestic proposal by the leading progressive candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination came under withering attack from moderates Tuesday in a debate that laid bare the struggle between a call for revolutionary policies and a desperate desire to defeat President Donald Trump.

Standing side by side at center stage, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren slapped back against their more cautious rivals who ridiculed "Medicare for All" and warned that "wish-list economics" would jeopardize Democrats' chances for taking the White House in 2020.

No. 6 - It’s a type of scam that is on the rise - scammers threatening to release embarrassing videos of you unless you pay up.

But one woman instantly knew it was a scam after signing up for a free birthday bagel. Click here to read her story from NBC 6 Responds.
