EAST TEXAS —

Well after the coldest morning of the year Thursday morning (down to 26° in Tyler), the winds made a shift and started to come from the southwest on Thursday and that put us on a warming trend. These winds will help temps continue to rise today and stay warm into Saturday. Rain will return before too long though, so let's take a look.

This mostly sunny to sunny pattern we have in place will last for the rest of the week and into the weekend. Temperatures today will hit the upper 60s, with sunny skies, and stay in the upper 60s tomorrow with mostly sunny skies. Temps will drop slightly Sunday and Monday with a few more clouds and chance for rain in the forecast. Rain chances and slightly cooler air should linger into the midweek next week as well.

Chances for rain are 30% on Sunday and 10% on Monday. Expect skies to be mostly cloudy on Sunday but returning to partly cloudy for Monday and Tuesday. Things should be dry and cool for Wednesday, and Thanksgiving is looking cool and dry as well...at least for now. We will be keeping an eye on a rain/storm system to our south on Thanksgiving that could push rain into East Texas, but as of now that chance is only 10%.

Enjoy the great weather as we kick off the weekend East Texas!
