TEXAS, USA — Good evening, scattered showers and thunderstorms, some with gusty winds are moving through East Texas this evening. The thunderstorms are forming along a weak cold front that is sagging south through the area. The front is breaking a very hot stretch of weather where we've seen numerous days of highs hitting more than 100-degrees.
The front will stick around Thursday, brining more chances for rain and thunderstorms. We will heat back up over the weekend but another boundary next week will spark more rain and thunderstorms and hold highs in the 80s most of next week.
Showers or storms will move towards Deep East Texas during the first half of the night. By Midnight, outside of a stray shower, most of us will be dry. A partly to mostly cloudy sky will stick around and thanks to the rain, we'll be slightly cooler. Temperatures will fall into the mid-70s.
Rounds of rain will continue tomorrow, bringing with it some much-needed relief from the heat and humidity, as well as our drought situation. A cluster of storms will arrive into the I-30 corridor around sunrise. These will spread southward throughout the day, bringing rain to I-20 by lunchtime and Deep East Texas during the afternoon.
Just like today, a stronger gust of wind is possible in isolated clusters of storms. Thanks to the cloud cover and rain, our high temperature will only reach the mid-80s.
