TYLER, Texas — The weather looks picture perfect for Friday Night Football across East Texas. Saturday looks nice, but we can't completely rule out a few showers as a weak disturbance will work across the region. Sunday night into Monday morning is when we are expecting a real threat for strong to severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center currently has a marginal risk out for the northern half of our viewing area. Storms are not expected to show up until after the sun goes down at the earliest.
Let's take a closer look at the forecast to see what we can expect!
This Weekend & Next Week:
This chance for rain and storms will rise to 60% on Sunday with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Highs will be in the low to mid-80s throughout the weekend.
The best chance for storms will be late Sunday into early Monday, though chances for rain and storms start around 20% Sunday afternoon and keep increasing into the overnight. Some of these storms could be strong to severe, so we will be keeping a close eye on the situation. As of now the storm prediction center has most of East Texas under a slight risk for severe storms.
Storm chances will continue from Sunday night into Monday for East Texas, with a 60% chance for rain and storms. Again some of these storms could be strong, but right now it is too early to tell. Temps will start to fall throughout the day on Monday as the cold front bringing the storms moves through.
Storms are gone by Tuesday as sunny skies and mild weather returns. Expect a high in the low to mid-70s. This weather pattern will repeat itself on Wednesday as well.
A 40% chance for rain and storms will then return with another cold front on Thursday. Highs will stay in the low 70s.
Make sure you stay weather aware as we head into this Sunday East Texas!
