First Alert: Get set to dodge some tropical downpours this weekend

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Deep, tropical moisture will combine with daytime heating to give us a 60% chance of rain for Saturday before falling off to 30% on Sunday. Not everyone will get wet this weekend, but those of you that do come across some of these downpours could receive a quick half-inch to one inch of rainfall in a short period of time due to the moisture-laden clouds that will be in place.

The added cloud cover and the presence of rain in our area will curtail those temperatures this weekend, with daytime highs coming down into the lower 90′s.

Look for drier conditions to quickly return by early next week, which means it will be back to our typical, hot August weather under partly sunny skies and highs climbing back into the middle 90′s.
