East Texans Enjoy Warm Temperatures

While it's not officially the first day of Spring, it sure felt like it around East Texas Saturday.

Dozens of folks showed up at places like Bergfeld Park in Tyler to enjoy the Spring-like temperatures. From family picnics, to tossing the ball around to just plain being lazy, the warm weather gave everyone an excuse to get out of the house.

David Dodd brought his whole family out for a picnic. He said he wasn't going to miss the good weather.

"Beautiful weather, beautiful. You know I've been working in the rain and the snow so I decided to come out here and enjoy myself with the family."

Cindy Morgan works for the Tyler Independent School District. She said the weather helped get Spring Break off to a good start.

"It was the weather, it was definitely the weather and not wanting to be inside and celebrate the beginning of Spring Break."

Spring Break for many area schools begins Monday. The warmer temperatures are expected to stay around through the week.
