First Alert: A few showers on the menu for Thursday

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - It has been another warm, but quiet weather day in East Texas as we sit under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday will provide us with our best chance of rain this week as a trough of low pressure swings through the state, giving us more clouds and a 40% chance of scattered rain showers.  None of the rain that does occur will be all that heavy in nature.  The added cloud cover and rain shower activity should hold temperatures down into the upper 80′s.

We will then be greeted by a cold front that will move through early Friday morning.  This will make for some pleasant weather for high school football on Friday night throughout the Piney Woods.

Behind this frontal passage, we will be rewarded with some nice, fall-like weather this weekend as morning lows dip into the middle 60′s and daytime highs top out in the middle 80′s under sun-filled skies and low humidity.

The low humidity and cool breezes will linger into early next week before deeper moisture associated with a tropical disturbance and frontal boundary offshore could bring back the clouds and some rain chances toward the middle of next week.
