Brighter and Drier Days Ahead for the Piney Woods

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Skies will begin to clear out overnight as northerly winds usher in a fresh batch of cooler, drier air.

The winds on Friday will be rather stiff and out of the northwest at 15 to 20 mph, gusting higher at times. Despite the winds, it will be a sun-filled day as that cool breeze will scour out the moisture.

High pressure will then dominate our weather landscape this Easter weekend, leading to some spectacular weather across our part of the state. Look for chilly mornings to give way to warm afternoons under sun-filled skies and low humidity. It will feel great to be outdoors.

As we transition into next week, southerly winds will return, leading to some higher humidity levels making their way back in to East Texas. We should stay mainly dry through Monday before scattered rain showers and thunderstorms return by the middle part of next week.
