EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Southerly winds out ahead of a cold front likely to move through during the day on Wednesday will allow for an abundance of moisture to move into our area. A cold front is expected to begin moving through on Wednesday morning over northern areas and should take most of the day to make it into the southernmost areas of East Texas.
Ahead of this cold front, we are expecting to see some very heavy rainfall during the day on Tuesday with the heaviest expected to occur Wednesday morning as the front moves through. Rainfall totals are likely to be in the 3.00"-5.00" range as an average with some areas likely to near close to 7.00" Tuesday through Thursday.
Additional severe weather risks appear to be low at this time, Hail, Wind and Tornado. We will continue to pinpoint any and all risks for you as we get closer to the frontal passage on Wednesday morning.
Please remember your flood safety tips... especially not to drive onto roadways that are covered with water. It is difficult to determine just how deep the water is, especially at night. So, "Turn Around, Don't Drown".
