After a dry spell, rain will return to East Texas over the next few days, heavy at times.
That chance for rain will start to move into our area from the west Thursday afternoon. Grab your umbrella and get ready, it will stay over the region through the weekend.
An area of low pressure, building over Arizona, will continue to slowly move to the northeast. As the low moves through the region, it will pull moisture from the Pacific and the Gulf into East Texas. This system will bring rain, heavy at times, through the weekend. The best chances for rain will be Friday and Saturday.
Flash Flood Watches have already been issued for Henderson, Van Zandt, Kaufman, Rains, Hopkins, Hunt, and Delta Counties through Sunday morning. Rain totals could reach 2-5 inches, with isolated amounts up to 7 inches by then.
Highs will stay in the low 80s Thursday, but as clouds and rain increase, we'll fall into the mid to upper 70s Friday through the middle of next week. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s each morning.
Scattered showers and storms will continue through Tuesday, along with mostly cloudy skies.
