It has been another cool and mainly sunny fall afternoon in East Texas. Those high, thin, cirrus clouds will be increasing across the East Texas skies as we head through the overnight hours. The clouds will act as a blanket and keep our temperatures just a few notches above the freezing mark tonight. Those clouds are advancing in ahead of our next storm system, which will bring us a good chance of rain showers on Friday.
Thursday night will be mostly cloudy and on the chilly side. Lows falling into the lower and middle 30's. Winds will be easterly at 5 mph.
Friday will be cloudy and wet with a 70% chance of rain showers. Highs in the middle 50's. Winds will be out of the southeast at 5 to 10 mph.
The rain on Friday will move in during the midday hours and continue for the remainder of the day. Rainfall totals will range from one half to one inch on average. The rain will move out Saturday morning, but the clouds look to persist and hang on for the first half of your weekend. Behind this system, another cold front will push through, dropping our temperatures once more. This will lead to a light freeze for Sunday and Monday mornings next week. Once our skies clear out Saturday night, we will be in store for several days of sunshine that will continue through the middle of next week.
