Weekend weather watching

Sure, this is the time many of us take off early for the holidays. And the weekend is upon us. But there is severe weather on the horizon and we know you need us. And we won't let you down. We have a plan in place to make sure we do our best to keep you safe this weekend. Not only that, we have a full news team ready to report on any potential weather stories tomorrow. So, if you need to know anything weather-related tomorrow, please don't hesitate to turn to KTRE or pull up KTRE.com on your computer or smartphone. We got you covered.

And at 6 and 10 tonight, Brad Hlozek will keep you updated on the latest weather forecasts.

Here are a few other stories we have for you tonight:

At 6, Michelle Reed introduces you to the first person who is the recipient of a project to provide needy children with homemade wheelchairs.

Also at 6, Francesca Washington shows you how Lufkin ISD is teaching sign language as part of a tri-lingual program.

A dwindling population of monarch butterflies has one Nacogdoches environmentalist concerned. She isn't sitting on the sidelines. Instead, the woman has written a children's book about the remarkable monarch's migration. But as Donna McCollum reports at 6, the author's story provides a much bigger lesson.

Have a great weekend and be safe!
