Scattered light rain today, more storms possible this weekend


Last night most of East Texas received between 1 and 3 inches of rain as a strong cold front moved across the area. In its wake, much cooler temperatures are in store for East Texas the next two days along with a chance of rain. Today we are not expecting widespread heavy rain as the mid level energy is well to our west. However, the flow aloft will keep southerly winds aloft running over the cooler temperatures at the surface, creating clouds and scattered light rain showers today into the evening.

The cold front that stalled to our south last night will begin to move north as a warm front tomorrow. As this occurs showers and thunderstorms will redevelop late Saturday and over spread East Texas Saturday night. Highs on Saturday will remain in the middle 50s in most areas however, our extreme southern counties will probably reach the lower to middle 60s during the late afternoon or evening hours as the front moves through.

Sunday the warm front will move north through all of East Texas. This will cause or temperatures to be much warmer Sunday afternoon. Highs will reach the upper 60s north to lower 70s south. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to be a possibility with a few strong to severe storms possible in the afternoon. By Monday morning much of the area will have received between 3 to 6 inches of rain with this system.
