Wednesday's Weather: Cool, cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the low 70s

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

It will be cloudy, cool and we'll even see a chance for rain for our Wednesday, thanks to a cold front pushing through the region.

This front, moving in from the northwest, will have moved all the way through East Texas by lunch time. It'll park just south of Deep East Texas as a stationary front for a few days. Behind this weak front, highs will fall into the upper 60s along I-30, the lower 70s along I-20 and the mid 70s in Deep East Texas. Scattered showers will be possible throughout the day, but rain totals should stay light, with less than 0.25" expected by the end of the day.

Tomorrow, we'll have a better chance for rain, thanks to an area of low-pressure building in from the southwest. The best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon through Friday morning. We're not expecting a widespread severe weather event, but we could see a few isolated strong to severe storms during that time. The main threats will be damaging winds, with gusts over 60 mph, and large hail, around the size of quarters.

Scattered showers will linger through the end of the work week. By then, rain totals could almost hit 3". With rivers, creeks, and streams already at full capacity, we'll be monitoring the threat for flash flooding.

Skies will clear as we head into the weekend, thanks to high pressure moving in. Sunny skies will bring warmer weather, with highs jumping into the mid to upper 80s.

Rain is back in the forecast for the start of the next work week, as a cold front approaches from the west.

    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 >>
