Tuesday's Weather: Rain moves in with Tropical Storm Bill. Highs in the mid 80s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Heavy rain is on the way as Tropical Storm Bill moves closer to East Texas over the next few days.

Models indicate that Tropical Storm Bill, moving northwest, will move onto the Texas coast between Houston and Corpus Christi around 7 a.m. Tuesday. This storm will bring heavy rain and damaging winds, around 60 mph. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for the middle and upper Texas coast, including the cities of Houston, Galveston, and Victoria.

As Bill moves to the north, through Central Texas, heavy rain will move into our region Tuesday through Thursday. Rain totals could reach 4-8" by then with isolated amounts up to 12". Rivers, lakes, and creeks across the area are already at full capacity from flooding in May, so this additional rain, in such a short amount of time, will bring flooding. For East Texas, Flash Flood Watches have been issued for the entire area until Wednesday evening.

Bill is expected to weaken as it moves through the state, becoming a tropical depression as it moves into Central Texas Tuesday evening. Winds will decrease to 40 mph in Central Texas, 30 mph by North Texas.

We'll continue to monitor this system and keep you updated with timing and impacts.

Scattered showers will linger over East Texas Thursday and Friday as Bill starts to exit the region. By Saturday, skies will clear, continuing through the start of the work week.Expect partly cloudy skies as we start the weekend. Highs will rebound back into the low 90s by then.
