Friday Washout

An upper level disturbance moved through East Texas on Friday, bringing with it enough lift to generate widespread rain showers.

This time around, there was not enough cold air in place to generate snow. Instead, we got the usual: rain and dreary conditions.

This low pressure system also brought with it a weak cold front. You won't notice much of a temperature difference behind the front once it moves through your neighborhood. However, you will notice the drier air this weekend as high pressure in the Central Plains builds into the Lone Star state.

Here is a look at some of the rainfall totals as reported in from our local Weather Watchers across the Texas Forest Country. Generally speaking, most areas saw anywhere from 0.25" to 0.50". The highest amounts were along and east of Highway 59, while areas to the west saw about 0.10".

As the system pushes southeast, we will clear out and be in store for a nice weekend. Enjoy.
