East Texas finds itself in a deep freeze

(STORM TRACKER WEATHER CENTER):  Hard Freeze Warnings have been extended for southern portions of East Texas through Thursday morning, as another cold night is on tap.

Even though we will see another good freeze tonight, we will stay a few degrees warmer thanks to some cloud cover moving into the area.  These clouds act as a blanket at night, and therefore, will keep us from falling quite as far as we would have otherwise.

That means instead of teens and low 20's, we are looking at forecast low temperatures of middle to upper 20's instead.

You will still want to keep the pipes wrapped and take the precautions to keep you and your family warm during this cold spell.
