TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Rain chances for this week, specifically Thanksgiving Day, have increased since yesterday morning. Across the board, the forecast for the second half of the holiday weekend is looking wetter and cooler. Starting with Wednesday, most of us will be looking at partly to mostly cloudy skies through the day. Isolated to scattered showers and thundershowers will be possible, especially for the northern half of East Texas. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon should peak in the upper 50s and low 60s, pretty close to where highs today/Tuesday will be. Late Wednesday and early Thursday, more widespread showers and thundershowers will begin moving into East Texas. As we go through the day activity will spread south, to pretty much cover the entire area in clouds and rain by noontime Thursday. Heavy rain is expected to continue through the afternoon, with intensity dropping into the evening. Rainfall totals through Thursday evening into Friday morning could exceed 2″ in some areas.

Friday morning, some activity left over from Thursday will be on-going in parts of East Texas. This is expected to clear as we go through the day, leaving only isolated shower chances for Friday. For those that don’t see any rain on Friday, the big weather inconvenience for you will likely be the wind. Breezy north winds are expected through the afternoon. Finally on Saturday, our period of wet weather will be wrapping up. Only a low chance right now for rain on Saturday, but still a chilly day. With the changes in the forecast in the last 24 hours, not only have the projected rainfall totals increased, but the warming trend previously advertised is also being pushed back a day. We still expect highs back in the mid to upper 60s by early next week, but it looks like we’ll have to wait until Sunday, compared to the Saturday forecast yesterday. As of Tuesday morning, severe weather is not expected this week, though thunder and lightning, as well as flooding will be possible. You may also see some chatter about possible winter weather with this system; however, we are not forecasting any winter precipitation for this week. As always, we’ll let you know if anything changes.
