Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: The ATF is bringing in more agents to East Texas after finding two suspicious devices in one day. We'll hear from people who live near the area where one of the possible pipe bombs was discovered and tell you what the reward is now for information leading to an arrest in the case.
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has scheduled a news conference today in San Antonio with fellow Senator John Cornyn. We'll tell you what she is expected to reveal later this morning.
Parts of the northeast are getting pounded by heavy rain that has resulted in serious flooding. We'll have a live report with details on which state is getting a federal disaster declaration from President Obama.
Plus, our Joe Terrell ventures into the kitchen to see if using the "Egg Genie" is just as easy as boiling water…in today's "Does It Work?".
A warm and breezy day is on tap for us. Lake wind advisories are posted for much of East Texas today as gusty south southwesterly winds increase as high as 30 mph at times today. High temperatures will reach the lower 80s with lots of sunshine today. It will be breezy again tomorrow with highs once again in the lower 80s.
A cold front will move into the area Friday night. Ahead of this front, strong to severe storms appear likely late Friday. The main threat appears to be high winds and hail, but we could see an isolated tornado or two as well. Highs Friday will be dependent on increasing cloud cover. Right now it looks as though we will reach the upper 70. But if clouds move in early, temperatures will be cooler. This will also lower the threat of severe weather. If clouds move in later, then temperatures and our severe weather threat will increase.
The storms will move out in time to produce a fairly nice Easter. Right now it looks as though we will see partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 70s. Stay tuned for the latest developments on the pending severe weather threat Friday.
