Rain possible for weekend

By Brad Hlozek - email

FROM THE EAST TEXAS WEATHER CENTER (KTRE) - After nearly a month without seeing any significant rainfall, we will finally have a decent chance of showers and storms this weekend across the Piney Woods.

An approaching disturbance on Saturday will spark off showers and storms across North Central Texas.  Other than a few isolated showers, most of us will be stay dry on Saturday, albeit it will be warm and humid.

If you are headed down to Reliant Stadium to watch The Battle of the Pines between SFA and Sam Houston St., take an umbrella.  While the Houston area is not expecting widespread, heavy rain, there will be a few hit and miss showers as moisture comes in from the Gulf of Mexico.

The second half of your weekend, however, is when we expect to see our best chance of receiving some rainfall.  Some of the rain could come in the form of some strong thunderstorms, but no widespread severe weather is anticipated at this time. 

We will then clear out the skies and warm-up behind the storm system for early next week, with highs getting close to 90 in some cases.

Remember that you can keep informed and stay ahead of the storms this weekend.  Just head to our Storm Tracker Weather Center  for the latest Live Streaming Radar and Interactive Radar views as well.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Richard is churning in the Caribbean and could move into the Gulf of Mexico by early next week.  We will be keeping close tabs on Richard and you can too.  Just visit our Hurricane Center for the latest coordinates and forecast track.
