First Alert: Slightly better rain chances could return for the end of the week, this weekend

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It will be another hot and muggy day on Thursday under partly cloudy skies. We do have a 20% chance of rain in play, but most areas will remain dry.

We are tracking a tropical wave in the southern Gulf of Mexico that will approach the northern Gulf coast region by Friday and this weekend. This feature may help draw in some of that deeper moisture toward the Piney Woods, which would bring us some slightly better rain chances.

At this time, we have bumped our rain chances to 40% on both Friday and Saturday to account for that tropical wave as it encroaches on the upper Texas or southern Louisiana coastline.

With some better moisture to work with and high pressure not influencing our weather, we will see slightly lower temperatures as daytime highs come down into the lower-to-middle 90′s.
