Thursday's Weather: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 70s. Showers return tonight

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Skies will stay clear for our most of our Christmas Eve, but the break from the rain won't last long.

Expect mostly sunny skies for our Thursday, perfect if you have any Christmas Eve travel plans. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s. 

By this evening, scattered showers will begin to build into Deep East Texas, from the south. These will move to the north, building along a front, into the northern half of East Texas (along and north of I-20) after midnight, into Christmas morning. Lows will be in the upper 50s Friday morning.

For your Christmas, expect scattered showers and storms throughout the entire day. We'll be mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 70s. 

The Storm Prediction Center has placed East Texas under a "marginal risk" for severe weather (level 1 of 5) on Thursday and Friday. This means that we could see a few isolated severe thunderstorms with the main threats being damaging winds, hail, and heavy rain.

As an area of low pressure builds in from the west for the weekend, rain, heavy at times will continue through Monday morning. By then, rain totals could reach 3-5 inches. Behind a cold front, moving through Sunday into Monday, lows will fall into the low 30s with highs in the low 50s. 

Have a Merry Christmas!

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
