EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Some scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will linger across East Texas as we round out the week.
If you are headed to any area high school football games on this Friday night, you will want to keep a watchful eye to the sky as we have a 30% chance of rain in the forecast. Even though the rain chance is small, any storm that does develop could be on the strong side, containing frequent lightning and some gusty winds. This could possibly delay kickoff for some area teams, depending upon how close any storms would be to the stadium.
The cool front that could spark a few storms around the Piney Woods Friday evening will be the main player, however, in bringing us our first taste of fall this weekend.
In the wake of the cool front's arrival through your neighborhood Friday night, you can expect a quick wind shift to the north. This wind shift will clear out the skies and usher in some cooler temperatures and lower humidity to the Texas Forest Country, making for a very pleasant weekend in our part of the state.
The biggest payoff, though, will be our morning low temperatures when you wake up on Sunday and Monday morning. Yes, we are looking at upper 50's to be felt area-wide on both of those days.
The low humidity and cooler temperatures will not last too long. In fact, by next Tuesday, a southerly breeze will ensue, allowing for the warmth and humidity to quickly return to East Texas.
