EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - A slow moving upper level low pressure system will bring us very good chances of heavy downpours in the days ahead. The rain that has been falling in Central and West Texas is now migrating to the east, and for us, this means we will get our turn to get wet as we head through the middle part of this week.
Since this low pressure will be crawling at a snails pace, we will have multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms each day this week. With all the available moisture there is to work with, any showers or storms that develop and move over your neighborhood will be efficient rain producers.
Right now, we believe two to four inches of rain are likely in many spots between now and Thursday evening. In these type of weather patterns, it is often difficult to pin-point where the heaviest rain will take place, but having an umbrella on hand would be smart, just in case you find yourself underneath a heavy downpour or two.
From previous experiences, this will be one of those weather patterns where a handful of communities could receive one to three inches of rain one day, followed by hardly a drop of rain the next, and vice versa for the areas that may miss out.
In addition to the heavy rain threat each day, there will also be a "slight" risk of severe thunderstorms each day as well. The main threats with any storms that do turn severe would be damaging winds and small hail.
