Rainfall will be measured in inches before it comes to an end Friday night.
A surface low will track along the Gulf coast, enhancing our rain chances on Friday.
EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -
The light showers we saw today will be an appetizer for what is to come as we round out the week.
A stronger west coast disturbance will be moving overhead on Thursday night and continue through the day on Friday. This second and stronger disturbance will generate plenty of lift to give the Texas Forest Country some good, soaking downpours.
Look for the scattered showers on Thursday to turn in to more numerous showers on Thursday night. As we head through the overnight hours on Thursday, the rainfall will become heavy and widespread across our part of the state. The heavy downpours will continue through the late morning hours on Friday before tapering off to a light rain on Friday afternoon.
When it is all said and done, many areas in Deep East Texas will end up with two to three inches of rain, with a few spots possibly receiving even higher amounts. Based on our latest guidance, the highest rainfall potential looks to take place along and south of a Groveton to Lufkin to Hemphill line.
