Cops: Obsessed Teacher Spoke of Running Away With Pupil, 11

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police say a Pittsburgh elementary school teacher who resigned this month was obsessed with one of her 11-year-old students, encrypting her phone number on the girl's math homework, exchanging thousands of text messages with her and even talking of running away with her.

Twenty-eight-year-old Geraldine Alcorn was arraigned Wednesday on charges of child luring, corruption of minors and attempting to interfere with custody of the child. She was jailed after being unable to post $100,000 bond.

Police don't believe Alcorn's attraction to the girl was sexual but said she continued to leave gifts and letters for the girl at school even after the girl's mother complained and Alcorn resigned.

Online records don't list an attorney for Alcorn, and none appeared on her behalf at the arraignment.

Storm Team Wednesday morning forecast (04/01/2015)

TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Another muggy start with temps in the 60s, though no fog is forming, so there's some good news for your midweek. This afternoon will be warm to hot once again with temps in the mid 80s. The rain threat stays mainly to the north and east once again as a stalled out frontal system just to the north of the region allows for impulses of a few storms. Some of the storms could be on the strong side with hail and high winds the main threats. Overnight, fog will form as winds ease up with temps dipping to around 60°. Thursday afternoon, we'll see much of the same with conditions warming to the mid 80s and a few pop up storms possible. We eliminate the rain threat altogether by Friday with warm temps still in the mid top upper 80s. A sweeping cold front moves through Saturday sparking a few showers and storms and knocking temps back to the low to mid 70s for highs. Easter looks completely dry as high pressure builds in on the back side of the front ushering in a cool start to Sunday morning in the upper 40s and low 50s. By the afternoon, we'll have glorious conditions in the mid to upper 70s. Winds quickly turn off the Gulf by the start of your Monday as the high pressure moves off the Atlantic coastline allowing for more moisture and a few showers to start the work week off.

Storm Team Tuesday morning forecast (03/31/2015)

TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - A very similar set up to what we saw yesterday, though it's much muggier this morning with temps in the low 60s and upper 50s. Expect patchy fog heading out the door with temps warming after sunrise to the low 80s by later this afternoon. We could see a few heat-induced thunderstorms especially the farther north & east you are courtesy of a stalled out frontal system draped over the region allowing for enough unstable air to bubble up the storms. One or two of the storms could have some small hail or high wind gusts. A carbon copy day tomorrow and Thursday with temps starting around 60 with areas of fog with temps bumping up to the mid 80s with some storms possible later in the afternoon. Muggy and warm on Friday with temps still in the mid 80s. By Saturday, a sweeping cold front moves through bringing in more scattered storms but the cold front pushes all the way through causing temps to come down slightly. We're only in the mid 70s Saturday. Easter starts off slightly cool around 50° but by the afternoon, glorious sunshine will boost temps into the upper 70s. Storm threat returns to start the work week with temps in the upper 70s.
