How much will you spend on your sweetheart this Valentine's Day?

Good afternoon, everyone! We certainly hope you're having a splendid Thursday afternoon.

We have these and other stories planned to share with you today:

Retailers anticipate Americans will spend more than usual on this year's Valentine's Day: up to $131million! The National Retail Foundation suggests being cautious and buying things that are sentimental, not necessarily flamboyant and expensive. More at 4.

At 5, we'll tell you about a crime that occurred in Upshur County last night; one person was stabbed to death and two others were injured by a suspect that they knew. The whole story at 5, as well as the latest on the student who was hit by a car on campus at Robert E. Lee High School today.

At 6, we'll tell you about some speed changes that are coming for many on Texas roadways. We know many of you are happy about it, while others fear it will be a dangerous change. We'll also tell you about a local Good Samaritan who returned a wallet that was loaded with cash! It's a  great story that makes us proud of East Texas.

And Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will join us from the weather center with the latest on the weather that you can expect this weekend, as well as the rough weather in store for our friends up the west coast.

Join us for all of that and more, on KLTV7 and on the livestream on!

We'll see you soon!
