EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -

For the first time in nearly a month, our weekend weather is actually going to be fairly pleasant, as we avoid another washout.

However, a very active and potent area of low pressure will be moving into the state early next week, bringing with it our best chance of severe weather we have seen around these parts in quite some time.

We will see rain and thunderstorms move in to the Piney Woods on Monday before an even more active weather day arrives on Tuesday.  It’s on Tuesday when we will have all the dynamics and ingredients in place that any storms that move in will be capable of producing hail, damaging winds, and even a few isolated tornadoes.

It is the tornado threat that has me most concerned based on the wind profile that will be in place at that time.

In addition to the threat for severe weather, heavy rainfall is also likely, as two-to-four inches of rain will be likely for all of our KTRE viewing area.  With much higher rainfall rates expected with this event, some flash flooding issues could arise as well.

With such an active weather pattern likely to set up around here early next week, make sure you stay on top of the latest weather developments over the weekend.
