Mild temperatures set to take a nosedive this weekend

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Be on the lookout for some low clouds and patchy fog when you head off to work and school on Friday morning.

We will see a 40% chance of rain showers return on Friday, all ahead of a strong cold front that is still scheduled to arrive on Saturday morning.

This cold front will provide us with a 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms overnight Friday.

Rainfall amounts look to average between one-half to one inch before that window closes by sunrise Saturday.

In the wake of the cold front, we will experience blustery, north winds and a big drop in those temperatures during the day on Saturday as we go from the 50′s in the morning to the 40′s in the afternoon.

This arctic blast will then set the stage for a couple of nights of sub-freezing temperatures come Sunday and Monday mornings in which most areas will drop into the upper 20′s on Sunday morning and right around 30 on Monday. It should be noted that the airmass is not as cold as it looked like it would be a few days ago. So even though we are still forecasting freezing temperatures, it will not be nearly as deep of a freeze as it could have been.

Thankfully, the sunshine will be out, albeit, it will be a cold sunshine on Sunday and a cool sunshine come Monday.

We then quickly warm-up as south winds return before another fast-moving disturbance brings another cold front and more rain chances our way by the middle of next week.
