Salvatation Army offers refuge from the cold

SOUTHEAST TEXAS - A cold front blew across Southeast Texas early Monday morning, bringing up to 1 1/2 inches of rain in spots and causing temperatures to plummet.

The Salvation Army is offering free shelter to people to escape the cold. 

Stay with KFDM and for updates.

The temperature dropped to the mid 40's Monday morning with the wind chill in the 30's.

Temperature will rise to only the 50's Monday-Thursday with morning lows in the lower 30's.


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Freezing weather has reached parts of Texas as strong winds cut electricity to about 3,000 homes and businesses in central parts of the state.

Austin Energy spokesman Ed Clark says windy conditions caused the outages before dawn Monday.

Clark says about 2,300 customers in Austin lost electricity when a power pole was damaged. The rest lost power when strong winds blew tree limbs into power lines. Crews restored electricity to about two-thirds of those customers by 8 a.m. Monday.

Temperatures dipped into the teens in parts of the Panhandle. The National Weather Service says light snow associated with the cold front was reported in parts of North Texas, including Decatur, Denton and Fort Worth.

Some schools in the Lubbock area delayed the start of classes Monday due to weather.
