Brace yourself, East Texas!  Ole man winter is making a stop in our area, bringing a few flurries yes I said flurries this afternoon.  Now before you start to panic and run to your nearest grocery store and stock up on bread and water the cold front will not last long.

From our media partner KLTV and the National Weather Service, a freeze warning is in effect for central and eastern counties of East Texas starting around 8pm Thursday until 9am Friday morning.  Some will see flurries and some will not and because the weather is above freezing there will be no accumulations.

Mark Scirto, as always, is keeping East Texans in the know.

Take precaution and make sure everybody is warm - including your pets. Make sure you pipes are wrapped up and cover or bring them inside and finally keep warm cider or hot cocoa on standby!
