Heavy Rain Possible This Week.
Good Monday Morning East Texas. As advertised last week, a very wet and unsettled weather pattern is setting up for East Texas this week. We are watching a disturbance over the Texas Panhandle this morning that will move in to East Texas this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely later today with heavy rain a good possibility. Overnight tonight we will see more storms develop out to our west and move into the area giving us another chance of heavy rain. More disturbances are lined up to our north and west and will continue to slide across East Texas throughout the work week. The threat for severe weather is low however, if we see any breaks in the clouds today or tomorrow allowing for additional daytime heating, the atmosphere will become more unstable than forecast and storms could be stronger with a hail and high wind threat. We could also see a flooding threat develop across East Texas this week. Flash Flood watches will probably be issued before the week is out for parts of the area as rain fall could reach 6 inches plus is some areas, especially across Northeast Texas. Stay tuned to your East Texas News Leader for the latest weather information throughout the week.
