TYLER, Texas — While the worst parts of Hurricane Barry missed East Texas, we did see some rain showers and storms over the weekend as a result of the tropical system. As the system continues to push away it keeps pulling moisture into East Texas, and as a result, rain chances remain in your forecast today thanks to what remains of Post Tropical Storm Barry. After this rain leaves, things will get much drier and much warmer for the rest of the week.
Let's dive in for a look!
Some moisture from what remains of Barry will linger around the region as we head through Tuesday, combined with heat driven pop up chances for the afternoon. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy, to mostly cloudy at times, and we will see a continued 20% chance for a few showers or a storm. Rain chances will be highest in Deep East Texas and towards the ArkLaTex.
Expect highs in the mid-90s for Tuesday, with "feels like" temps easily in the triple digits. Heat Advisories are in place for Anderson, Henderson, Rains, Van Zandt, and Hopkins Counties from now through Wednesday evening.
Chances for rain will fade after Tuesday evening, and the rest of the night should be dry. Skies will see a few clouds lingering around, and temps will fall to the mid to upper 70s.
Skies will start to clear out and temps will warm up as we head past Tuesday. Expect mostly sunny skies for Wednesday and Thursday, sunny skies for Friday, and mostly sunny skies for Saturday. Any rain chances for these days will be confined to afternoon pop ups, and is currently forecast as less than 10%, with the exception of Wednesday, where the forecast is for just 10% and mostly in Deep East Texas.
Highs each day will be around the mid-90s, with lows each night in the upper 70s.
Sunday & Monday:
Sunday and Monday are the next best chances for rain after the influences of Barry move out on Tuesday. While I say best chance, I only mean that loosely, as the chance is only around 10% Sunday and 20% on Monday for a few showers or a storm. Expect mostly sunny skies on Sunday and partly cloudy skies on Monday. Temps will be in the mid-90s.
More heat is on the way East Texas! Get the ACs ready!
