    "Picture perfect" weather expected for Easter Sunday

    Today’s forecast is just about “picture perfect”. We will see plenty of sunshine, light wind, low relative humidity values and highs right about where we should be for this time of year, so please enjoy it! The area of high pressure giving us this nice day will slowly drift eastward on Monday, but we should still see a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the low-mid 70s. It doesn’t last though as a cold front pushes into the area on Tuesday producing widespread showers and even a few thunder...More >>

OAK RIDGE (WATE) - Y-12 National Security Complex officials are reevaluating security procedures after an Oak Ridge woman was able to drive into the complex's main entrance.

Authorities say 62-year-old Brenda L. Haptonstall drove into the complex along with morning commuters Thursday morning.

Haptonstall made it two miles through the plant before being stopped by security personnel.

Steven Wyatt with the National Nuclear Security Administration says the woman was detained after a few minutes and did not enter any high security areas.

While authorities say no material or facilities were at risk, the security police officers involved have been removed from duty pending the investigation's outcome.

Wyatt says that gate procedures are also being evaluated and supervisors are monitoring the work of security personnel until further notice.
