Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: We'll hear from the wife of a man who is now facing criminal charges over the shooting of a DPS Trooper in Wood County. She's speaking out about the events leading up to their violent confrontation. We'll also have the latest on the trooper's condition.
Executives of Toyota are taking steps to regain the public's trust after a major recall. We'll tell you why an incident in California could hurt their efforts.
An Oklahoma town is cleaning up this morning after a tornado touched down. We'll show you how much damage it caused.
Plus, we'll hear from a family that opened their hearts and their home to a young boy in need…in today's Proud of East Texas.
A line of thunderstorms is moving out of East Texas early this morning. Behind this line we will see clearing skies which will lead to the warmest day so far this year. Mostly sunny skies will greet us this afternoon with highs reaching the middle to upper 70s. The winds will be a bit gusty at times out of the southwest around 18 MPH gusting up to 25 MPH at times.
Another storm system will move into East Texas tomorrow afternoon. It still appears we could see a few strong to severe storms, but at this time we feel most of the severe weather will be just to our east. Highs tomorrow will be warm again reaching the lower 70s. If the forecast storm system slows down just a bit, highs could be much warmer and the chance of severe weather will be greater. Please stay tuned to the latest developments regarding tomorrow's severe weather set up.
The weekend is still looking great although a bit cooler. Temperatures will be slightly below normal with sunny skies. The only bad news I see this weekend is we lose an hour of sleep Saturday night. Spring is just around the corner.
