Thunderstorms later this afternoon and overnight may produce some hail and gusty winds to possibly 60 mph....locally heavy rainfall and lightning. The storms should steadily weaken as they move eastward...so your risk of a severe storm is higher to the east and lower to the west.
HOWE, TEXAS -- An old barn in Howe burned to the ground this afternoon due to careless smoking.
Grayson County Fire Marshal Kevin Walton says the barn off FM 902 and John Fields Lane went up in flames around noon.
Walton says a man who was demolishing the building accidentally flicked his cigarette into a pile of corn husks.
Howe and Gunter firefighters put out the blaze. The barn is a total loss.
