Thankfully Not a Repeat of 2021

The latest cold front that moved through over the weekend brought a lot of rain and colder temperatures to East Texas. It isn't cold or stormy enough to replicate what we went through for that week in February of 2021 but it is strong enough to cause some issues during the morning hours for the next couple of days.

The light rain and sleet is expected to continue throughout the night. Temperatures are expected to get down to right at, or just below, freezing. This will cause that rain and sleet to stick to our vehicles and to various bridges and overpasses making them dangerous to drive over or even impassable.
