Thunderstorms 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 west and lower to the east.
8-5-05 - Gainesville Police assisted in slowing down a high-speed suspect.
A man driving a Cadillac Escalade SUV nearly rammed into a Dallas county sheriff's transport vehicle early Friday morning.

Gainesville officers laid down road spikes blowing out the SUV's tires. After the vehicle came to a stop, Denton police made the arrest. The man is now in the Denton County jail facing felony charges of evading an officer.
