Bring on the Rain!

It looks like summer is beginning to lose its grip, allowing for high rain chances across East Texas. One disturbance will be swinging through overnight and into the day on Tuesday. This will lead to widespread showers and storms. Our computer model, Futurecast, is showing very heavy rain to our north but I would not be surprised to see some rain totals over one inch here in deep East Texas. This will be some welcome rain as the soils were beginning to really dry out. Nacogdoches county is still under a burn ban but this rain should help cancel that. There is also a slight risk of severe storms on Tuesday so you will want to stay tuned if warnings are issued. Don't forget to check the Live Doppler 9 Network and we will have more updates to come. Also, be looking for a tropical update this week. Things could get really interesting by the end of the week!
