(KLTV) -

The chance for rain will increase in the next few days, with heavy rain possible over East Texas.

The cold front is now through most of East Texas. It has made it through Tyler, Longview, and Jacksonville, and is hanging out over Deep East Texas this afternoon. Now, as the front slows down and stalls, the weather across most of East Texas should be fairly stable and dry through Wednesday early afternoon.

Beyond that time, the chances for showers and isolated strong thunderstorms will increase. Rain chances should rise to near 40% by late Wednesday and increase further to 60%-70% for Thursday and Friday. Because of this, rainfall totals are expected to exceed 2"-3" for most all of us and may even get closer to 5" over the Northern and Eastern Sections of ETX. Your StormTracker 7 Weather Team will continue to keep you updated on this rain event through it's duration.

There will be a slight risk for Severe Weather according to the Storm Prediction Center, beginning at 7 a.m. on Thursday and will continue through at least 7 a.m. on Friday as upper level disturbances track over a very moist air mass over East Texas. Flash Flooding appears to be the greatest threat during this time period.

As we get into the upcoming weekend, the rain chances will go down dramatically and the temperatures will head back into the hot category as well.
