LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Following Monday's much lower than expected rainfall, Angelina County has instituted a countywide burn ban.
The ban prohibits all outdoor burning of trash, brush, open campfires, etc. until the ban has expired or is rescinded.
The Pineywoods area had a good chance of rain on Monday, but the storm died down once it hit East Texas, pouring just a tenth of an inch on the area.
A storm system will drag across East Texas on Thursday, though any chance for severe weather appears to be only likely north of I-20.
