Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: The ATF will examine the remains of a pipe bomb discovered outside an East Texas post office. We'll tell you what steps they took to neutralize the device and if they have established any connection to a series of "Molotov Cocktails" found at other East Texas postal facilities.
President Barack Obama is hitting the road this week to drum up support for the health care reform bill he signed into law on Wednesday. We'll have a live report from Washington, D.C. on the next steps in the fight over major changes to the nation's health insurance system.
In sports, we'll meet an East Texas athlete who is the best in the state at what he does…and tell you about his plans to soar to new heights.
And…it's supposed to convert a harmless, tasty treat into a flying weapon. Our Joe Terrell will try out the "Marshmallow Shooter" to find out the answer to the question…"Does It Work?"
Clouds have moved back into East Texas and rain and thunderstorms are not too far behind. We will see mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with a chance of showers and thunderstorms late. Highs in most areas will reach the lower 70s. However, a few of our eastern and southern counties could see a little more sun today, helping to boost temperatures in the middle 70s. A broken line of thunderstorms will develop to our west this evening and push through East Texas during the early morning hours Thursday. Some of these storms could be severe with the main threat being hail and high winds. Tomorrow we will see partly cloudy skies late in the day with highs in the middle 60s.
Another chance of storms is in the forecast late Saturday in to Sunday morning. Once this system moves through it looks as though spring will really be setting in as most of next week looks dry and much warmer. By the middle to end of next week we could be seeing a few 80s out there. Are you ready?
