Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: East Texas is drying out from a round of wet weather that flooded roads and even damaged some homes. We'll hear from some of the East Texans involved in dramatic rescues of their neighbors during the flood and have an update on when we can expect some more rain.
The government is out with new estimates of the amount of oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from that sunken BP oil rig. We'll have details on the latest figures along with information about who will be visiting the White House to discuss the situation with President Obama next week.
They are dazzling audiences across the state with their fancy footwork. We'll hear why the members of the "Rhythm Rocker Cloggers" are so enthusiastic about dancing.
And…we'll have a guest chef in the kitchen this morning for "Cooking Up A Storm". James Harp of the Hotel Fredonia will show us a special recipe for barbecue sauce and fill us in on some of the attractions at this weekend's Texas Blueberry Festival in Nacogdoches.
After yesterday's flooding rains across parts of East Texas, most areas will get a chance to dry out. Highs today will reach the low to mid 90s in most areas with the heat index value approaching the upper 90s. We could see an isolated afternoon storm develop but it looks as though most areas should remain dry. I'll have your weekend forecast on Good Morning East Texas.
