First Alert: Heavy rain on the menu for Wednesday

First Alert: Heavy rain on the menu for Wednesday

(KTRE) - A slow moving storm system will combine with ample moisture and a surface cold front to generate some heavy rainfall throughout East Texas during the middle part of the week.

Due to the threat for heavy rainfall in the Piney Woods, we have declared this Wednesday a First Alert Weather Day for Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and all of Deep East Texas since it will more than likely throw a wrench in your outdoor plans.

At this time, we do not anticipate severe weather being a notable concern.  However, some very heavy rainfall rates could set up with any showers and thunderstorms that develop and move over our part of the state.

Rainfall amounts look to be on the order of two-to-four inches starting overnight Tuesday and continuing throughout the day on Wednesday.

Even though Wednesday will be our most active day of the week, the upper level winds blowing over East Texas will continue to keep the wet and unsettled weather in play for the rest of the week, which means having your rain boots and umbrellas on hand would be a wise idea.
