Overnight Weather At Your Fingertips
Partly cloudy to mostly clear overnight.
TYLER, Texas (KLTV/KTRE) - Good evening, East Texas! Here is the weather where you live... Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies overnight with evening showers coming to an end by midnight. Temperatures to start our Monday will be in the mid to upper 70s, and highs Monday afternoon will be in the upper 90s. Most of the day will be on the sunny to mostly side, but as we head into the afternoon and evening hours, rain chances will return to our forecast. Monday will begin/continue a period of more rainy weather in East Texas, and by Wednesday we will be able to add “cooler” to that description.
Significant chances for rain will be with us through the middle part of the week as we see a bit of a change in our upper-level pattern. While it is not unreasonable that many of us could see at least a quarter of an inch of rain over the next week, this is not going to be the drought ending rain forecast many are hoping and waiting for. Rain chances will be highest Tuesday through Thursday, but there is a chance everyday Monday through next Saturday. If you were curious, the last time all of East Texas was drought free was the first week of September of last year. And to end the current drought? At least 12-15″ of rain would be needed, that according to modeling from NOAA. Burn bans do remain in effect for most of the area, though rain this week should help some with Fire Danger.
As for temperatures, I mentioned briefly that it will be cooler this week... Our normal high for this time of year is 96 degrees, and we have consistently been above that for the last few weeks. This week, there are four days in my forecast where we will be at or below normal for high temperatures! Additionally, there are no widespread triple digits expected this next week, though some of us could make it there tomorrow. By next weekend, our pattern looks to shift back to the hot and dry. Highs for next weekend will be in the upper 90s with little to no rain currently expected. Have a great evening and week.
