There’s a very low chance of severe weather today. Expect showers throughout the day.

Other stories this morning:

  • The Fort Worth Stockyards is an iconic destination, but how much of it is historic? The city’s zoning commission will discuss that today.
  • Millions of Americans suffer from memory loss, but doctors and scientists haven’t yet figured out how to reverse it. An ambitious new project based in North Texas hopes to find the key.
