EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - An area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere, sitting over southeast Texas, will bring moisture into the region today, instigating showers for our Wednesday afternoon.
That low will keep our winds out of the southeast, pulling in that gulf moisture. Showers will start to fire up, especially across Deep East Texas, during the heat of the day, continuing until the sun sets. Showers will be scattered with a few isolated storms over Deep East Texas. Farther north, along I-20, these showers will stay isolated today. A few of these showers could produce some moderate rainfall, with rain totals possible hitting just under 0.25" by the end of the day. The best timing for any rain will be from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Most of us will stay dry for our Wednesday, with partly to mostly sunny skies. Highs will reach the low 90s this afternoon.
That area of low pressure will exit the region, into the Gulf of Mexico, on Thursday. Sunny skies return as the chance for showers diminishes. This trend will stick around through the end of the week. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s with highs in the mid 90s.
Our next chance for showers will move in on Sunday, continuing into our Labor Day holiday. Right now, the chance for rain is low, with only isolated showers, but we'll keep an eye out and keep you updated.
Have a great day!
