First Alert: Another round of cold, wet weather heading for the Piney Woods

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It will remain rather warm and humid overnight with a few areas of drizzle or light showers.

Our next cold front will swing through the Piney Woods on Tuesday afternoon. We will have an 80% chance of rain and a few embedded storms form along and behind the frontal passage on Tuesday afternoon. Once the front sweeps through your area, it will turn breezy and noticeably cooler, with northerly winds ushering in a fresh batch of colder air to East Texas.

Instead of clearing out, we will hang on to the clouds and have to endure a couple of cold, raw, wet, and dreary days for Wednesday and Thursday as moisture overriding the cool air at the ground will lead to a chilly rain in our part of the state.

The combination of cloudy skies, rain, and cool, northerly winds mean daytime highs on Wednesday and Thursday will struggle to get out of the 40’s. This means you will need both the jackets and rain gear on hand so you can stay both warm and dry.

Rainfall amounts will be plentiful, with one-to-three inches of rain likely throughout our KTRE viewing area from now through the end of the week.

By Thursday evening, the rain and moisture moves out, giving way to clearing skies and a return of sunshine for Friday and Saturday.
