Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: U.S. Census forms are going out to millions of homes across the country this week, and some East Texans are working to make sure their friends and neighbors will be counted. We'll tell you why they are so concerned with making sure their community's population is represented in this national effort.
Investigators for the U.S. government and Toyota are skeptical of a California man's claims that his Toyota Prius sped out of control on a busy highway. We'll have details on their investigation into the incident.
An actor known for his roles in the t-v series "Mission: Impossible" and the movie "Airplane!" has died. We'll tell you how friends and colleagues are remembering Peter Graves.
Plus …he spent 20 years patrolling the oceans as part of the "silent service". We'll hear from East Texan Ronald Oas in today's "Freedom Fighters".
We are waking up with mainly clear skies and temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 60s. This afternoon we will see increasing clouds and not quite as warm as Sunday. High temperatures will reach the upper 60s with a few places touching 70 degrees. We will have cloudy skies tonight with a slight chance of a shower by morning. Low temperatures will drop into the upper 40s. Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain and highs reaching the lower 60s.
The remainder of the work week looks warm and dry until we reach Friday evening. A fairly strong cold front will give us a chance of thunderstorms late Friday into Saturday morning. Behind this front we will see cooler weather for the weekend with temperatures dipping down into the middle 30s Sunday morning. A few of our normally colder locations could get close to freezing Sunday morning and we will be watching this situation closely as the growing season has begun.
