(KLTV) -

As we venture through the next 5 days, the weather pattern here in East Texas will change dramatically. We are not expecting too much severe weather during this time period, but a few strong storms will be possible Thursday and Friday.

A cold front is expected to move into East Texas late Tuesday, stall over the area for a few days, then move through as a cold front by the end of the week. As all of this happens, warm/moist air from the Gulf of Mexico will move over the cooler air to the north of the front, causing chances for showers and thundershowers through Wednesday.

Rain chances are expected to be in the 30% - 40% range through mid-week. Following that time period, an area of low pressure will form along the western edge of the front, over West Texas, move toward the east and then through ETX on Friday. During the Thursday and Friday time period, the chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms will increase to 60% -70%.

Rainfall totals are expected to be in the 1.50" to 3.00" range starting overnight tonight and continuing through Saturday. Only a few showers or thundershowers are possible this coming weekend. By then, most of the moisture should be fairly low.

We will continue to keep you posted on this cooler and wetter weather pattern setting up here in East Texas.
