Wednesday's Weather: Increasing Clouds. Scattered Showers this afternoon. Especially across the north. Highs near 90

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Happy Wednesday, East Texas! Your Wednesday forecast calls for clouds to be on the increase, and a chance for afternoon pop up showers are possible, especially across the northwest half of East Texas.

A stronger disturbance will drop south from the Rockies and invade East Texas, Wednesday night into Thursday. This disturbance will provide a much better chance for widespread showers and storms. Some of the storms could drop some locally heavy rainfall with 1-2 possible in some parts of the area by Friday morning. Thanks to the clouds and rainfall, temps will be kept in check, with highs only in the low to mid 80s through the end of the week.

Showers and storms should come to an end during the day, Friday. Leaving us with a mostly dry and below normal weekend, with highs only in the mid to upper 80s.

Next week, will start out on the quiet note with mostly sunny skies and highs warming back to the lower 90s. Rain chances could pick up once again by late week.
