Beginning this afternoon and continuing through Sunday, a major rain event is expected across the eastern third of Texas, including the Pineywoods.

A cold front is expected to push through later this evening and then stall just to the south of us.   

This means that over the course of the next several days 2-3 inches of rain will be rather common in the area, with up to and over 7 inches possible in some parts of East Texas.   Unfortunately, severe storms with large hail and damaging winds are also expected, especially this afternoon and tonight.

As always, keep listening to KICKS 105 for updates.  Make sure that you have downloaded Radiopup onto your smart phone.  It's a free app that allows you to listen to KICKS 105 on your phone...this could come in handy in the event of a power outage.
