Friday's Weather: Fog and showers, heavy at times, tapering off by the evening. Highs low 50s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Good Friday morning East Texas!

We are starting the day with overcast skies and a light drizzle, but expect more rain to start moving into the forecast throughout the morning hours. The heaviest rain looks to stay in Deep East Texas, with anywhere from 0.10"-0.50" of rain for our northern counties, and 0.50"-1.00" of rain for our central and southern counties, with some locally heavier amounts possible. There could also be an isolated thunderstorm- with a few lightning strikes or rumbles of thunder and gusty winds.

The rain will move through rather quickly, with scattered showers still possible by noon time. It looks like things will start to dry out by the evening, leaving us with mostly cloudy skies and only a slight chance for a few lingering showers. Highs will remain in the low to mid 50s today with winds out of the northeast 10 mph.

By Saturday, the rain looks to be over, with mostly cloudy skies to start the day- becoming partly cloudy by the afternoon. Morning lows in the low 40s with daytime highs in the mid 50s. A chilly start Sunday with lows in the upper 30s and highs in the mid 50s, but skies will stay dry through Monday and temperatures will get back into the low 60s!

Tuesday a weak cold front pushes through bringing about a 30% chance for rain. But skies will clear for Christmas Eve with morning lows in the mid 30s and highs in the mid to upper 50s. Right now, your Christmas Day is on track to see mostly sunny skies, but maybe a bit warmer than the season calls for- morning lows in the low 40s with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Have a great Friday and weekend!
