Chilly weather leaves ETX dreaming of spring ... again

Good afternoon, everyone. We hope your day is going well!

Have this afternoon's rain and chilly temperatures caused you to take a second look at your calendar? This is April, isn't it? Well, it is, and Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will join us at 4, 5 and 6 to explain what happened to our warm, sunny weather and when we can expect it again!

At 5 we'll tell you how students at one East Texas college are dealing with yesterday's tragic stabbings at a Texas college. Officials say that emergency plans are in place, and says that ultimately, students are responsible for their own safety. We'll share more this evening.

At 6, a bipartisan deal reached by two senators could expand background checks to all commercial sales, such as gun shows and online sales. They say they hope their agreement will help keep firearms from criminals and the mentally ill. Our Shaley Sanders has the details on this agreement and how East Texans feel about expanding background checks.

And if you're into bargain shopping, whether for fun or necessity, you won't want to miss the CCCSale in Tyler this weekend at Harvey Convention Center. Click here to find out more.

Here's the link to our livestream on KLTV.com.

Also, make sure to download our weather app; it's free and especially helpful on days like today! Find it in your iPhone or android app store.

We'll see you soon,

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut.

In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
