Another inch of rain or more possible for Wednesday

EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - After nearly two months of limited rainfall, the skies have finally opened up, dumping some heavy, but much needed rain across East Texas.

"Rainfall totals through Tuesday night ranged anywhere from 0.50" to over 2.00" from many of our Weather Watchers across the Piney Woods," according to Chief Meteorologist Brad Hlozek.  "Due to the long and drawn out process of our rain, it has allowed much of the water to soak into the parched ground soils, thirsting for moisture."

Hlozek says we'll see another repeat performance on Wednesday as a slow moving upper low slowly sides south towards the Texas coast.  Thanks to its slow movement, that will keep the clouds and rain in the forecast for a third straight day.

"It should be noted that going into the month of November, we had a rainfall deficit of 11.77" for the year.  Just two days into the new month, we have officially received nearly an inch of rain at the Angelina County Airport, helping erase some of that large deficit," Hlozek said.

It is possible we could see another inch or more through the day on Wednesday, added on to the rainfall totals we have already received.  "With the cloud cover and rain around, temperatures will be on the cool side, struggling to make it out of the 50's on Wednesday afternoon," Hlozek said.

As we head towards the end of the week, the low will move out, which means the sunshine and drier weather will move back in.
