Pockets of heavy rain likely through next week

EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - More wet weather will be returning to East Texas, starting late Saturday and continuing through the middle of next week.

A continuous stream of Pacific moisture will combine with increasing low-level Gulf moisture and multiple upper level disturbances to generate pockets of moderate-to-heavy rain across East Texas.

While we are not calling for a washout each day, we do believe that the odds of rain where you live will be fairly high, with the highest odds of getting wet taking place on Sunday and Monday, where heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms will be likely.

The rain chances will then drop off by the middle of next week, but they will still remain in the forecast.

Our rainfall potential from Saturday night through next Wednesday will range from two to four inches across all of Deep East Texas, with some isolated areas possibly receiving as much as five inches before it is all said and done.
