A combination of very strong winds, falling temperatures and frozen precipitation will make Wednesday and Wednesday night dangerous for motorists. Freezing rain and sleet will change to snow before ending late Wednesday or early Thursday. Wind chills of 5 to 10 degrees...with air temperatures in the low 20s...can be expected. Roads will be icy Thursday morning but should melt during the day as skies clear and temperatures rise above freezing.
PARIS, TEXAS -- After more than three decades with the Paris Fire Department, and eleven years as chief, a familiar face is stepping down.
Chief Ronnie Grooms joined the department 34 years ago. He was promoted to chief in 2001. Now, he says he's retiring.
Assistant Chief Dale Maberry says Grooms will leave the department on October 15th, the same day Grooms started with the department.. back in 1978.
