Temperatures on Thursday afternoon were a few degrees lower compared to previous days. This is due to increased moisture in the low levels of the atmosphere. One thing that did not change was how it feels outside. Earlier Thursday afternoon, it felt like the middle to upper 90s and low 100s.
Changes are on the way…
Rain will begin to increase in East Texas beginning Friday and going through next week. The rain chances on Friday will be about 40% to 60%. For the weekend, they will be at least 60%.
The heaviest rainfall will occur in Deep East Texas over the next 3 days, where rainfall amounts up to 3 inches are possible.
Even into next week, we will continue to see daily chances of showers and storms.
