Even though we are catching a break from the wet weather today, don't put away those umbrellas just yet. That is because another round of heavy rains and a few strong storms will be returning to the Piney Woods starting on Thursday afternoon. This potent upper air disturbance will be moving in from the Rockies. As this system approaches, the stalled out front will lift back to the north as a warm front, drawing in plenty of warmth and humidity, which will aid the threat for heavy rainfall over the next couple of days.Look for the rain to pick up in coverage and intensity starting Thursday afternoon and then continue through the overnight hours and even going through most of the day on Friday. Since this system will be slow to move out of Deep East Texas, more heavy downpours will be possible again on Saturday.
