A First Alert weather day declared for Presidents' Day

A First Alert weather day declared for Presidents' Day

EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Your Presidents' Day will continue to be a soaker as light-to-moderate rain will continue to stream north into East Texas for most of the day.

At this time, we do not foresee severe weather being a notable threat.  This will mainly just be a widespread, soaking rain event for all of Deep East Texas.

With our upper level winds running parallel to our surface winds, we will continue to see plenty of moisture stream into East Texas, which is why umbrellas and windshield wipers will be getting a good workout today.

We expect the rain to taper off by later today, as the bulk of the rain begins to shift east into Louisiana.  Other than a few lingering, light showers tonight, we will see drier air start to return to the region by Tuesday.

One of the best ways to stay on top of the weather where you live throughout the day is to have our FREE KTRE weather app. on both your smart phone and tablet devices.  You can view our interactive radar, get severe weather alerts, and watch our video updates on the go, when you want it, at your convenience.
