Heat records tumble Tuesday; highs expected to top 90 through Thanksgiving weekend
This all is out ahead of another cold front that looks to bring about rain chances by the end of next week/early next weekend. Temperatures ranged from the low to mid-80s in normally cooler coastal areas to the mid-90s in warmer valley areas.

Law enforcement officials have arrested 32-year-old Dabrett Montreal Black of Lindale after several hours after the shooting. Those charges are from Smith County where Tyler is.

The body of a Texas state trooper shot and killed during a traffic stop on Thanksgiving is being escorted to a funeral home in Teague, about 98 miles (158 kilometers) south of Dallas. He then returned to the patrol unit and the suspect fired multiple shots from a rifle at Trooper Allen, who died at the scene. Jail records show Black was free on bond in Smith County, Texas, after being charged earlier this year with aggravated assault of a public servant and evading arrest or detention with a vehicle.
