First Alert: Dodging a few downpours this afternoon and evening. More rain likely this weekend.

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - A few scattered downpours have developed this afternoon to cool a few of you down. Outside of any showers and rumbles of thunder, it will remain very humid under partly cloudy skies.

As we progress through the upcoming Memorial Day Observance weekend, our rain chances will be on the upswing as a trough of low pressure draws in moisture and provides the additional lift in the atmosphere needed to bring us likely chances for rain, especially as we get into Sunday afternoon and Memorial Day.

Saturday’s weather will be similar to today. Namely, it will be partly sunny, warm, and humid with a 30% chance of widely scattered, afternoon downpours. Look for highs tomorrow afternoon to reach the lower 90’s.

With rain chances becoming likely from Sunday through the middle of next week, it will not be as warm as the added cloud cover and rain activity will lead to highs only reaching the lower-to-middle 80’s.

Therefore, if you were planning on being out on the lake or by the pool and doing some grilling on Memorial Day, you will definitely want to have some backup, indoor plans ready to go since those rain odds are 70%.

Our rainfall potential in the next week looks to average around one-to-three inches throughout the Piney Woods, with isolated, higher amounts possible in a few locales.
