TRACKING CURRENT CONDITIONS
A potent weather system taking shape across the Midwest where a cold front and an upper disturbance have come together triggering a lot of rain. For us, that cold front will be sliding into our area this afternoon.
This afternoon, the cold front is approaching and we are heating up to our max temperatures. This plus some sunshine will allow for clouds to build vertically into the sky, tapping into the colder air aloft and then triggering storms. Futurecast does not show much between 12 PM and 2 PM, but after then the storm development is expected.
Most of the storm coverage remains north of HWY 79 through the late afternoon and evening, but some rain expected into Deep East Texas after 6 PM and especially late evening.
The storm threat will remain possible in Deep East Texas through early Monday morning with the cold front slowly moving in.
Areas where heavier rain occurs could pick up over 1″ of rain. However, through this Wednesday, all of East Texas could receive 1″ – 3″ of rainfall.
