Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: East Texas is in the grip of an Arctic cold front this morning. Corrigan-Camden ISD and Apple Springs ISD have decided to delay the start of school as a precaution.
The extended period of cold weather means East Texas homeowners are taking steps to protect their plumbing. Some home-owners are even picking up a water meter key to shut off water in case a pipe bursts.
In today's Health Minute, we'll have some tips on ways to fight the cold if you're working outdoors this weekend.
And in sports…the Texas Longhorns were denied another national championship Thursday night. Alabama defeated the Horns in the BCS National Championship game in which a key member of the Longhorns offense was injured.
An upper level disturbance is helping to produce clouds this morning across the area. This actually helped keep temperatures from dropping into the middle teens last night. Clouds will linger for the first half of the day helping to keep high temperatures below freezing just about area-wide. Tonight, skies will clear and winds will die down just a bit, allowing for middle teens in most areas. We will have another cold day tomorrow with most areas reaching the lower to middle 30s.
