Pockets of Heavy Rain Provide Relief

For the first time in a couple of weeks, the radar was lit up over East Texas on Wednesday afternoon. This is the image that was taken at 4pm. As you can see there were scattered thunderstorms covering a good majority of East Texas.

The rain was welcome in more ways than one. First and foremost, it gave many lawns and gardens a much needed drink of water.

The other thing it did was cool us down into the 70's after we had been in the lower to middle 90's.

Even if you did not receive much rain, you probabl felt the cooler temperatures as a result of the rain that feel nearby.

Here are some rainfall totals from our Weather Watchers.

Willie Lankford Etoile 2.0"
Daryl Thomas Cushing 1.0"
