After heavy rain, severe storms, and reports of tornadoes over the weekend, rain will come to an end for our Monday.
The cold front that brought us the severe weather Sunday is moving to the east, through Louisiana early Monday morning. Those strong to severe storms are building along the front, out of East Texas.
Behind that strong front, we have an area of low pressure moving into East Texas from the southwest. Showers are building along this low, leaving moderate rainfall. After widespread heavy rain over the weekend, any additional rain today will add to the flooding threat.
Flash Flood Watches will remain in effect for Delta, Hopkins, Hunt, Franklin, Titus, Morris, Cass, Camp, Kaufman, Rains, Wood, Upshur, Marion, Harrison, Van Zandt, Smith, Gregg, Rusk, Panola, Henderson, Anderson and Cherokee Counties until 6 a.m. By then, rain totals (from the weekend through 6 a.m.) could reach 6-10 inches.
These widespread showers will continue through about 7 a.m. After that, we could see a few isolated showers before lunch, but most of us will see an end to the rain.
Not only will you need your umbrella this morning, but you'll need your coat as well. Temperatures quickly fell about 20 degrees behind that strong front yesterday. Highs will only reach the mid 40s for our Monday with winds out of the west from 15-25, gusting up to 30 mph.
Skies will clear, becoming mostly sunny by Tuseday. Lows will fall into the low 30s with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. These chilly conditions will stick around through the upcoming weekend along with mostly sunny skies.
