Showers have started popping up along the I-10 corridor, with many areas seeing lightning as well. These cells are small, but will keep popping up through most of the afternoon hours. This trend continues through the weekend, as we see hot afternoons repeating as well. Highs will reach the mid 90's by Saturday and Sunday.
Southeast Texas kicks off Mardi Gras
Tom Wright attended the annual Mardi Gras courir and spoke with Tecoo Leger and Stanley Leger, KFDM anchor Bill Leger's wife and father.
