There isn't much sunshine this morning, nor will we see an abundance of sunny skies for quite some time. Rain is on the way, but for the most part East Texas will remain dry today. Rain chances are small today, but the bulk of the rainfall expected this weekend will arrive tomorrow. A cold front will glide through the region on Sunday, increasing rain chances as it moves. Right now the front is situated to our northwest, and will continue to inch towards East Texas. First Alert Weather Days have been issued for Saturday PM-Monday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed northern portions of East Texas under a SLIGHT risk today, and the majority of our area under a SLIGHT risk for tomorrow. This is category 2 out of 5. Storm threats include isolated storms, large hail, gusty winds, and thunderstorms.
The cold front will knock our highs back into the low to mid 80s, and our rain chances will stay at about a 40% chance all next week.
Have a great weekend!
