Tuesday's weather: Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Highs in the mid 90s


Showers and storms are back in our forecast Tuesday.

That area of high pressure that brought sunny and hot weather into East Texas last week has moved to the west. Currently, we're sitting between that high and another one to our east. With a moist and unstable air mass parked over the region (between those two highs), the chance for rain will continue.

With the help of a disturbance moving in from the southeast, setting up over northwest Louisiana, combined with all of the moisture over the region, scattered showers and storms will develop Tuesday and Wednesday. We could see a few showers possible in the morning, but the best chance for rain (30-50%) will be in the afternoon and early evening each day. While widespread severe weather is not expected, we could see a few isolated storms that could produce high winds and heavy rain at times. Folks in the southeastern portion of East Texas (Center, Nacogdoches, Lufkin, Jasper, Hemphill) will have the best chance for rain.

Rain totals could reach 0.5" by the end of the day Tuesday, increasing up to 1.0" by Wednesday night.

We will be partly cloudy Tuesday and Wednesday with lows in the mid 70s each morning and highs in the mid 90s each afternoon. Winds will be out of the east, around 5 mph Tuesday, shifting out of the south (again, around 5 mph) Wednesday.

With light wind and plenty of moisture at the surface, we could see patchy fog each morning. The fog will clear as the sun comes out and we start to heat up.

Our weather pattern will stay unsettled through the end of the week. That humid airmass will stay over the region, keeping the chance for scattered showers and storms in the forecast, especially during the afternoon and early evening each day. Lows will stay in the mid 70s with highs in the low to mid 90s each day.

Rain totals could reach 1.5" by Friday night.

Showers will linger through Saturday, but that high pressure to our west will start to build back into the region by the end of the weekend, bringing sunny and hot weather with it.
