The board is comprised of nine gubernatorial appointments, seven representing each congressional district, and two at-large members.

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across eastern Texas into northern Louisiana and these will move east toward SWLA overnight.  A few thunderstorms look possible across our area, but the greatest risk of severe weather is still well north of our area.  With that said there is a low chance that a few storms could be strong with gusty winds the primary concern, although a tornado is not impossible either.
