Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: You have a chance to show your support for "Extreme Makeover – Home Edition" today. There's a Volunteer Pep Rally at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler. We'll have a series of live reports and explain how you can sign up to volunteer for the show that's changing lives in our community.
They're finally home! Eight of the ten American missionaries being held in Haiti on charges they tried to take children out of the country illegally have been released. We'll tell you what they're doing now that they are back on U.S. soil, and why two members of the group had to stay behind.
Some of the top government officials in the state will be in East Texas today for a one-of-a-kind event. We'll tell you who will be here and what major issues they plan to discuss with the people they represent.
An area of high pressure settled across East Texas overnight. This has allowed for most areas once again to drop to or below freezing, with rural areas dropping into the middle 20s again. This area of high pressure will finally move east this afternoon, allowing for a rapid warm up later today. With lots of sunshine, we will see temperatures reach the lower 60s later this afternoon. Tonight will be nowhere near as cold as the past few nights with most areas dropping into the upper 30s. Clouds will be on the increase tomorrow with a slight chance of a shower or two. Highs tomorrow will reach near 60 degrees.
The weekend is still looking rather cloudy and mild with a chance of rain. Saturday, the front we were concerned about looks to stall to our north, keeping us in the lower to middle 60s with only a slight chance of an afternoon shower. A cold front will move into the area Sunday. Out ahead of this front we will see very mild conditions and a chance of thunderstorms. Behind the front, slightly cooler air will move in for next week.
