Coming up on Good Morning East Texas:
Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: Some heavy-duty help is on the way this morning to crews fighting that oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. We'll have a live report with details on how the new equipment could help them get the upper hand.
Today is the National Day of Prayer, with observances taking place across the country...despite a recent ruling by a federal judge that the action by Congress to declare a National Day of Prayer was un-constitutional. We'll have a live report from the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast in Tyler at 6:30am.
A new billboard is stirring up debate over presidential politics in East Texas. We'll show you the sign that's criticizing the President...and tell you what type of reaction it is generating.
And...she enjoys riding horses and singing...and is looking for a family to call her own. We'll meet Britney in today's "Gift of Love".
We are waking up with very mild temperatures this morning, mainly in the middle to upper 60s. This afternoon will be mostly sunny and very warm once again with highs reaching the lower 90s. Tonight will be another mild night with the low only dropping into the middle and upper 60s once again. A cold front will move through the area on Friday. It still looks as though the chance of rain with this front is very slim. However, if temperatures can reach the lower 90s south of the front in our southern counties tomorrow afternoon, then there will be enough instability for an isolated thunderstorm or two.
Saturday is looking very pleasant with highs in the upper 70s and much drier air. We could see an isolated shower across our far southern counties from Lufkin south early. Friday's cold front will move back to the north as a warm front on Sunday. As this occurs isolated thunderstorms will be possible. Highs on Sunday will reach the 80s once again.Next week is looking very warm, humid, and breezy. We will see highs approach 90 once again but with a little more moisture, there will be a slight chance of storms each afternoon.
