Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: The two suspects in a string of East Texas church fires are back behind bars this morning after making their first appearance before a judge in Smith County. We'll show you how investigators tracked them down using a combination of physical evidence and tips from the public. Plus, we'll hear from the woman who provided authorities with important information that helped them narrow their search.
Law enforcement officials say they still don't have a good explanation as to why the two men currently under arrest would want to burn down churches, but some of their friends and relatives are now offering their thoughts. We'll hear what they have to say.
A legal battle over the future of thousands of acres of East Texas land is over. We'll tell you how a decision by members of the United States Supreme Court will affect the Neches River National Wildlife Refuge.
He's using technology from the 1800's to make souvenirs that are popular today. We'll meet a man who is making his mark through the art of engraving in today's "Proud of East Texas".
We have a winter storm warning in effect from Palestine to Jacksonville to Carthage south. We can expect 3"-5" of snow in the warning area. There is also a winter weather advisory in effect from Canton to Quitman to Jefferson and south to the winter storm warning. 1"-3" of snow can be expected in these areas today. For our counties north of the advisory, only a dusting to an inch of snow is expected. Today will be cloudy with snow developing. This snow could start off as a mix of rain and snow with a little sleet. As the precipitation increases, surface temperatures will drop, allowing for all precipitation to change to snow. Snow will be ending overnight as temperatures drop into the upper 20s. Tomorrow, we will see partly sunny skies with highs reaching the middle to upper 40s.
Our weather pattern will continue over the next few days. We will see a system move through on Friday and another on Sunday. Right now, it looks like most of the precipitation will be rain with temperatures above freezing. There is a chance late Sunday into Monday morning we could see another round of wintry weather. The winter that will never end…stay tuned!
