Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: An East Texas family settling in to their new home this morning, built with help from hundreds of volunteers for "Extreme Makeover – Home Edition". We'll hear from the leaders of the professional construction crew that turned a vacant lot into a dream home in less than a week…and show you the Carr family's reaction when they saw their new home for the first time.
A man police say opened fire on two police officers outside the entrance the Pentagon has died of the injuries he suffered when police returned fire. We'll have details on what investigators are learning about his background.
Plus, we'll have a sneak peek at some of the new movies opening in theatres this weekend…including a twist on a childhood classic and a new action flick that's definitely not for kids.
Our warming trend continues this morning as we are waking up with most areas in the lower to middle 40s. This afternoon we will see a few clouds with temperatures reaching near normal levels, in the upper 60s. The pleasant weather looks to continue through the weekend with highs reaching the upper 60s to near 70 degrees with partly cloudy skies. We are still looking for a storm system to drag a cold front/dryline through the area late Monday early Tuesday. Thunderstorms will develop along this boundary and some could be strong.
There appears to be another chance of spring like storms late Wednesday as a new area of low pressure could develop across North Texas. This will have to be watched closely as temperatures will be in the middle 70s with this system. Warmer weather means a better chance of severe storms. Stay Tuned!
