Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: A play that had stirred some controversy in East Texas will go on as scheduled this summer. We'll hear why fans of "The Laramie Project" are so excited about the decision by the Tyler Civic Theatre Board.
Toyota is stopping sales of a Lexus SUV model after "Consumer Reports" raised concerns about the vehicle's safety. We'll have a live report on what other steps the company is taking to deal with the issue.
A Congressional panel is criticizing a government program that is supposed to help home-owners avoid foreclosure. We'll tell you what they think is wrong with the effort.
Plus…we'll get to watch our Joe Terrell clean windows to test the "Glass Wizard"…and he'll tell us if it passes the "Does It Work?" test.
Another great afternoon is in store for East Texas today. We will see mostly sunny skies today with highs once again reaching the lower 80s. Winds will be not quite as strong as yesterday and out of the southeast at around 15 mph. We will be watching southwest Louisiana closely this evening as a few thunderstorms could develop and move northwest. Right, now it looks as though these storms will weaken before making their way to East Texas but it is something we will have to watch. If these storms can hold together a few of our southeastern counties could get some much-needed rain.
A better chance of rain still looks to be on tap for East Texas late Friday into Saturday as a weak cold front moves in. Right now we are not expecting any severe weather with this front and only scattered showers will accompany it. It appears this front will move through the area by Sunday giving us a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Another disturbance will move into the area on Tuesday bringing with it a chance of showers.
