(KTRE) - A First Alert Weather Day has been issued for this upcoming Saturday, mainly for late Saturday afternoon and Saturday night as heavy rain and general thunderstorms will be possible in our part of the state this weekend.
The severe weather threat is very low, which means we are looking at mainly some pockets of moderate-to-heavy rain to go along with some rumbles of thunder. This rain and thunderstorm activity may be disruptive to some of your plans on Saturday night, which is why we have declared the time frame from late Saturday afternoon through Saturday night a First Alert Weather Day.
With the bulk of Saturday's rain and thunderstorm activity arriving very late in the day, I am growing more hopeful that Springfest Family Fun Day in downtown Lufkin and the San Augustine Texas Cultural Heritage Festival will be able to go off without too much of a hitch from Mother Nature.
Rainfall amounts with our weekend storm will average around one-to-two inches, with some isolated, higher amounts certainly possible.
