First Alert: A cool sunshine and a rain-free weekend on tap for East Texas

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - With clear skies and calming winds tonight, it will be a cold night in the Piney Woods with a light freeze expected as overnight lows drop to near 30-degrees.

The weekend is shaping up to be seasonally cool and dry across the Piney Woods.

Saturday will feature a light freeze giving way to a cool sunshine in the afternoon with a gentle breeze and daytime highs topping out in the middle 50′s.

Another storm system moving through the Ohio River Valley will send a blanket of clouds our way on Saturday night and early Sunday morning.  This cloud cover passing through may hold our wake-up temperatures Sunday morning just above the freezing mark.  Once those clouds pass by, our skies will turn blue, again, as we enjoy a sunny Sunday and highs climbing to near 60-degrees.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will be quite nice as well before a Pacific storm system brings back clouds and decent rain chances as we transition toward the middle part of next week.

Due to the slow-moving nature of next week’s storm system, we will see modest rain chances return by the middle of next week, with a likely chance of wet weather coming into play by Thursday.

With multiple chances for rain on Tuesday through early Friday, rainfall amounts look to average around one-to-two inches.  The slow-moving nature and position of this Pacific low-pressure system will ultimately determine our daily rain chances and rainfall amounts.

Temperatures will be mild next week with highs generally topping out in the upper 60′s to near 70-degrees under mostly cloudy skies and southerly winds.
