Big Changes this Weekend

After a rather warm and tranquil week weatherwise, we will be in store for some big changes this weekend all thanks to a cold front.

Our November front will move through East Texas overnight Friday and into early Saturday morning. Our Microcast computer model shows the front moving in between the hours of 3-5am on Saturday morning, when most of us are sound asleep.
You can expect some pockets of rain and a little bit of thunder as the front moves through.
Behind the front, look for the rain to taper off on Saturday as the deeper moisture moves further off to the east and exits stage right.

Even though the rain will temporarily move out, the clouds won't. As a result, temperatures will struggle to make it out of the 50's on Saturday, as we are left with mostly cloudy skies and damp conditions.
After a break in the rain Saturday afternoon, look for thicker clouds and another chance of rain to return to East Texas on Sunday, lasting through early next week.
Needless to say, you will probably need a light jacket and some rain gear if you plan on being outside this weekend.
Hopefully we will receive some much needed rain over the weekend and into early next week. With a moderate drought in place, we could surely use a drink of water, courtesy of Mother Nature.
