First Alert: Staying warm and humid with a few passing downpours

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It has been a warm and muggy day in the Piney Woods.  We will keep a 40% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms in place through sunset before the radar dries up shortly, thereafter.

Overnight will feature mostly cloudy skies to go along with warm and humid conditions as lows drop into the middle 70′s.

Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds to go along with a 30% chance of scattered downpours.  Otherwise, it will be warm and humid with highs right back in the lower 90′s.

Unfortunately, the cold front that was slated to push through East Texas tomorrow will not happen.  This frontal boundary will end up stalling across north central Texas, bringing some unseasonably chilly air to northwest Texas. 

Since East Texas will remain south and east of the frontal boundary, we will continue to see warmer than normal temperatures for this time of year heading through the rest of this week and this weekend.  That means lows will be in the lower-to-middle 70′s with daytime highs topping out in the lower-to-middle 90′s.

We are hoping that a second cold front may pass through our area on Sunday or early next week.  If this can happen, then we will see some slightly better rain chances to go along with a slight drop in our temperatures as well.
