Wednesday's Weather: Tropical Depression Bill to bring 2-4" of rain. Highs in the low 80s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Rain, heavy at times, will continue across East Texas for our Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Bill weakened into a Tropical Depression early this morning as it continues to move through Central Texas, about 40 miles east of Austin. This depression will keep moving to the north, between 10-15 mph, bringing heavy rain into portions of East Texas today and tomorrow.

We're already starting the morning with rain building in from the southeast, circulating around Bill. That chance for rain, heavy at times, will continue throughout the entire day. Rain totals could reach 2-4" by the end of the day, so Flash Flood Watches will remain in effect until 7 p.m.

With increasing clouds and increasing chances for rain, highs will drop into the low 80s this afternoon. Bill will also bring windy conditions to East Texas today, with gusts up to 30 mph.

By the end of the day, Bill will start to exit the region, moving into Oklahoma early Thursday morning, weakening into an area of low pressure. Showers will linger throughout the day on Thursday, once again circulating around that low. We'll have about an additional inch of rain possible on Thursday.

That low will exit the region completely by the end of the week, bringing mostly sunny skies for the weekend. Highs will jump back into the low 90s by then.
