Rain brings much-needed moisture across West Texas

July 17, 2013

Crossroads residents have been sighing in relief the past few days because of the system, which has slashed temperatures and brought some much-needed precipitation to the area.

National Weather Service Meteorologist David Henrig said the cause of all this welcome weather is an upper-level low pressure system that's slowly making its way through this area.

Guardians of the Children is a nonprofit organization established to help abused children. The Wildcat chapter held a fundraiser Saturday to help aid in assisting children who have been abused. It was a little bit of fun for an important cause.
