EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Outside of some spotty showers, we have remained out of the main storm track this past week, with all the active weather being confined to North Texas and Oklahoma.
However, that will be changing for us as we finish out Mother's Day and transition into next week.
As far as your weekend goes, we will see a few widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms both days, but nothing that will be widespread to cause you to cancel any plans you may have if you plan on taking mom out for brunch or a good time. The chance for rain will be at 30% on Saturday, followed by a 40% chance of late day and evening showers and thunderstorms on Sunday.
As we head towards Sunday night, that is when the storm track will begin to shift in our direction, bringing with it a 70% chance of strong thunderstorms and heavy rain as a late season cool front sweeps through Deep East Texas.
This cool front will stall out on top of us next week, which will set the stage for a very wet and unsettled weather pattern taking shape across East Texas and a good part of the state as well.
As disturbances track in along the stalled out front, we will have multiple rounds of heavy rain continuing off-and-on throughout the week.
The rainfall potential between Sunday night through next Friday will range from two-to-four inches, with some areas possibly receiving even higher amounts. This could lead to some flooding issues, especially in those areas that see repeated, heavy rains throughout the week.
