TYLER, Texas — Most of the rain has moved out tonight, but more showers and weak storms could pop back up into the afternoon and evening on Wednesday. Like Tuesday's storms, some could be strong with small hail, gusty winds, and plenty of lightning, but severe weather is not expected. The most likely chance to encounter a storm will be between 2 PM and 7 PM. We should get a break from the rain for at least a day or two as we head into the weekend.
Tonight will be our next best chance for showers and storms around East Texas. The overall risk for storms tonight is low, but some of us could see some showers and storms. Right now we are thinking there is a 10% chance for storms around East Texas overnight. Skies should become partly cloudy, the winds will stay light out of the south and morning lows will dip down to around 70°.
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY
Rain chances keep going down late this week, but should remain a little elevated for Wednesday. Right now we are expecting Wednesday to be partly to mostly cloudy with another 40% chance for showers and storms. These storms will be possible from sun up through the early evening, with the best chances for rain popping up after the noon hour. Like Tuesday, these chances for rain should fade away after the sun goes down.
Rain chances will fall to just 10% for Thursday, but jump back up to 20% for Friday. Skies will be partly cloudy for Thursday and Friday. Temps will be back in the upper 80s on Wednesday and back to the 90s by Thursday and Friday!
The pattern we settle into as we end the work week will follow us into the weekend. Expect skies to be partly to mostly cloudy both Saturday and Sunday, with a 30% chance for a few showers or a storm Saturday and a 40% for showers and storms on Sunday. Temps both days will be in the upper 80s.
Monday next week will continue this trend. Skies will be partly cloudy with a 20% chance for a few showers or a storm. Highs will continue to stay in the upper 80s.
While there aren't any major chances for rain in the forecast, small chances for rain and storms each day mean you need to keep the umbrella near by. Don't worry too much though, CBS 19 has you covered!
