EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -
Even though we have seen a break from the rains across East Texas, don't put away those umbrellas just yet.
A cold front will combine with lots of deep, rich moisture, to generate more rounds of rain and thunderstorms over the next couple of days.
The rain looks to develop and move in late Tuesday afternoon and will continue Tuesday night and through most of the day on Wednesday.
Moisture from Tropical Storm Octave in the eastern Pacific will really help enhance the rainfall along the cold front, which will arrive to East Texas Tuesday evening.
Since the cold front will be south of the area on Wednesday, it will be noticeably cooler, with cloudy, cool, and damp conditions expected.
Rainfall totals will range from one half inch to near two inches where the heavier rains develop. On average, I believe most areas will receive around an inch of rain between now and Wednesday night.
