EAST TEXAS —

A cold front is expected to stall out along the Red River by the end of the week, increasing rain chances across the area heading toward the weekend. That could, unfortunately, lead to a weekend washout in East Texas. We also have a slight chance of some rain on Thursday, but there is a greater chance on Friday. Rain chances look likely to continue through the weekend and into next week as well.

We saw some showers and storms in Deep East Texas today, but the rest of East Texas saw the hot and humid weather. Additionally, tomorrow will be another hot and muggy day, with temps reaching the mid-90s and "feels like" temps hitting the low 100s. For tonight expect skies to stay partly cloudy with pop up chances coming to an end as we get into the early morning hours. Lows will fall into the mid 70s.

Rain chances will last throughout the entirety of the next 7 days in at least some capacity. For Thursday we are looking at mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with about a 10% to 20% chance of showers and storms thanks to the heat and humidity. These will largely be heat driven afternoon storms and will certainly be of the hit and miss variety. That starts to change as we we head into Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with more consistent rainfall re-entering the forecast.

A weather system pushing toward the region will bring about a 50% chance for rain Friday which will bump to a 70% chance for Saturday and Sunday. Temps will drop down into the 80s as this system impacts our weather. Rain looks likely to linger past Sunday into Monday and Tuesday as well, so keep the umbrellas ready!

Get ready for some more rain East Texas!
