Thursday's Weather: Cloudy and cool with scattered showers possible today and tonight
EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - It is going to be another cloudy and chilly day so you’ll want the jacket/coat along with the umbrella as scattered rain will be possible at times today! This morning we’re waking up to temperatures in the 40s but will only warm into the 50s thanks to persistent cloudy skies and a not-too-breezy easterly wind. Some spotty showers will be possible this morning, with better coverage of our scattered rain expected through the afternoon and evening hours. Some rain will be possible just after midnight, then skies dry out for the rest of our Friday and all-day Saturday. Once we dry out temperatures will warm up fast, placing highs near 70° on Friday and then upper 70s to low 80s over the weekend. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible on Sunday, but coverage looks extremely limited at this time. Better coverage for rain is expected on Monday and Monday night as another cold front pushes through the area. Some showers and thunderstorms are expected for the start of our work week, although expected coverage is hard to pinpoint at this time. Some limited showers will remain possible on both Tuesday and Wednesday of next week which is great news if we want to keep our improved drought conditions where they currently are. We’ll keep you posted on next week’s rain chances once we get a little closer. In the meantime, stay warm today!
