A very pleasant spring-like day is in store for East Texas today. Highs will reach the 70 degree mark in most areas with lots of sunshine. Tomorrow will be a breezy day and warmer with highs reaching the middle 70s. A cold front will move into the area tomorrow afternoon bringing a chance of thunderstorms. A few of these storms could bring some gusty winds with them, however, we are not expecting widespread severe weather.
Sunday will be cooler with highs reaching the middle 60s, but he rain will be moving out of the area. We will have a big warm-up next week as we see temperatures approach 80 degrees by Thursday. Looking ahead to Easter Weekend, we could see some thunderstorms. A storm system looks to be moving towards the Southern Plains by Saturday. Hopefully it will move through before Easter Sunday. We will keep fine-tuning this forecast as details become available.
