First Alert: Increasing clouds and rain chances as we head through the week

Weather Where You Live

DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - I hope you got to take advantage of this splendid weather and sunshine galore the past few days because all signs point to gray skies and not much shade of blue in the offing one we get into tomorrow and looking down the road.

We will see partly cloudy skies overnight as temperatures will be chilly, but noticeably warmer than recent nights.  Look for lows to drop into the upper 40′s.

Wednesday will feature increasing clouds to go along with windy conditions and mild temperatures.  Highs will top off in the lower 70′s with southwesterly winds of 10 to 15 mph, gusting over 20 mph at times throughout the day.

A weak cold front will move in late Wednesday, bringing in some low-end rain chances by Wednesday night.

Better rain chances will prevail from Thursday through Monday of next week as a series of upper level disturbances track over the state.  This will keep us cloudy and somewhat unsettled as we have modest-to-high chances to get wet each of these days going forward.

Rainfall amounts look to average around one inch over the next seven days across Deep East Texas, with higher amounts likely further north toward the Interstate 20 corridor.

Despite the gray skies and pockets of rain later this week and this weekend, temperatures will remain at or above normal levels due to the initial cold front stalling out just to our south and southerly winds returning by this weekend.
