So far in 2017, sunlight in Deep East Texas has been a little tough to find.  The good news is that Friday should bring us a sunny day, the bad news is that about 4 inches of rain could fall between now and that sunshine. 

We haven't had major downpours causing flooding in the area over the first 3 weeks of 2017, but most yards are rather mushy to say the least.

Tuesday through Thursday, we're expecting widespread showers and thunderstorms in the Pineywoods.  Some storms may bring gusty winds and frequent lightning, but we're not expecting anything severe.  However, the multiple days of rain could total up to over 4 inches in the area, so localized flooding can't be ruled out.

By the way, that sun on Friday will be followed up by more rain chances on Saturday.
