Coming up on Good Morning East Texas:
There will be no quick fix to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that's now washing ashore in Louisiana and Mississippi. We'll have a live report this morning on the latest steps being taken to contain the damage.
The rest of the world has finally seen what thousands of East Texans accomplished this spring. We'll show you the inside of the Carr family's new home and tell you what they think about their experience with "Extreme Makeover – Home Edition".
Tennessee residents are facing the prospect of weeks worth of clean-up after a deadly wave of serve storms over the weekend. We'll show you the new threat from that storm system facing downtown Nashville this morning.
And…he survived the "Battle of the Bulge"…we'll meet Arch Puddington in today's "Freedom Fighters".
We are waking up to a very quiet morning weather-wise. This afternoon we will see partly cloudy skies with highs in the middle 80s. A few thunderstorms will develop out to our west this afternoon and evening and there is a chance a few of these storms could make their way across East Texas. Other than that it looks like a dry and warm work week as temperatures top out in the upper 80s to near 90 for most of the week.
By Friday afternoon, a front will be approaching the area so we should see a few more clouds helping to keep temperatures down in to the lower to middle 80s. This weekend will bring another shot of scattered thunderstorms to the area, but much like this past weekend, not everybody gets them. It looks like it is time to set out the sprinklers as Mother Nature wants to keep most of East Texas dry for the next few days.
