ETX school district approves police department

Coming up on Good Morning East Texas...

An East Texas school district will be getting a police force. We'll take you inside last night's school board meeting where the decision was made.

And, it could be a big day for Boy Scouts and Leaders across the nation. The decision on the organization's ban on gays is expected to come. We'll take a look at what factors are being weighed.

Good Morning East Texas Meteorologist Grant Dade says Friday will be dry, but our rain chances will be back for the weekend.  A strong cold front will move through on Sunday bringing with it a chance of showers and thunderstorms starting late Saturday. Highs over the weekend will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.  The threat for severe weather is still there for Sunday afternoon but right now it appears the threat will be lower than first anticipated. Stay tuned, because if the surface low which is forecast to move further north now moves closer to East Texas, that threat will increase.
