Tyler (KETK) - Spring is officially known as tornado season across East Texas but tornadoes can occur outside of the Spring season. We looked back at some numbers to see if it is a rare occurrence or a regular occurrence. According to the Storm Prediction Center, during the 1989 to 2013 the average number of tornadoes was about four for the whole state of Texas. Some other southern states see about 2-3 tornadoes a year.
Tyler (KETK) - Tonight the Geminid Meteor Shower peaks with up to 120 meteors possible. This is going to be one of the best shows to view it. In East Texas, we are expecting a mainly clear sky and an added bonus, the moon is in a waning crescent and only 17% is illuminated. Sometimes the light from the moon can obscure the meteors. The meteor shower coincides with the return of it's associated parent asteroid, 3200 Phaethon.
TYLER, Texas (KETK) - The East Texas Storm Team continues to track a very good chance of thunderstorms across East Texas early Sunday morning. This is due to an approaching cold front and an upper level disturbance. Both will combine with great Gulf moisture and give most of our area the heaviest rainfall since August. At this time, the #1 impact will be heavy rain, but frequent lightning and brief, strong winds could lead to some power outages and even tree damage to parts of East Texas.
Good evening. Temperatures are falling as clouds continue to decrease. A hard freeze tonight with lows from the SINGLE DIGITS to LOWER TEENS. Travel concerns for your Wednesday AM commute. -Marcus Bagwell https://t.co/jRjoevb3Ug

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
