Coming up on Good Morning East Texas : Two suspects are behind bars this morning, accused of setting fire to an East Texas Church. We'll tell you when they will have their first court appearance and why investigators believe they are responsible for the string of church arson cases in East Texas this year.
The arrest of those two suspects is allowing church members across East Texas to breathe a sigh of relief this morning. We'll hear from members of some of the congregations whose churches were burned during the crime wave…and tell you what question they still want answered.
He fought in the biggest battle of World War Two and spent time as a POW. In today's "Freedom Fighters", we'll hear what East Texas veteran Jack McElroy left overseas when he came back home.
Plus…they're some of the top athletes in their field, but they don't have big contracts or high-profile endorsement deals. We'll show you the furry, four-legged competitors of dog agility.
A cold front moved through yesterday and behind it, northwest winds will bring in cooler air today. Highs will struggle to reach the lower 50s and some areas might not get out of the 40s thanks to the cloud cover. An upper level low pressure is heading towards East Texas this morning and it has some very cold air in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere. This will help bring precipitation to the area tomorrow, giving much of East Texas a chance of snow. As it looks right now, it appears the greatest amount of snow will occur in a band from Palestine to Jacksonville south and north of a Crockett to Alto line. In this area up to 4" of snow could occur. Elsewhere, south of I-20, around and inch or two could be expected with areas north of I-20 receiving the least amount of snow, maybe up to an inch.
This precipitation will move out by Wednesday and we will be dry until our next system moves into the area Friday. Right now, this system appears much warmer and rain will be the only precipitation falling. Stay tuned to your East Texas News Leader for the latest on this developing winter weather situation.
