A week ago, a storm system brought extremely heavy rain to portions of East Texas. Much of the area reported rainfall totals of 4 inches or more. Parts of southern Jasper and Tyler Counties had catastrophic flooding with rainfall amounts of well over a foot.

Another Round of Heavy Rain for East Texas

Another upper level disturbance is heading to East Texas and it is expected to drop a lot rain tonight and early Sunday morning. One to three inches of total rainfall will be the norm, but there could be isolated areas that receive more than that.


Hopefully, nothing that will rival the double-digit amounts from last week.

Widespread flash flooding is not expected across East Texas, however, poor drainage and flood-prone areas will be susceptible to flooding. According to the National Weather Service, the biggest flooding impacts will likely come from already swollen bayous, lakes and rivers which remain high from previous rainfall.

Most of the area has experienced above-average rainfall this spring and the ground is at or near saturation levels. Additional heavy rainfall will lead to runoff and possible flooding.

Thankfully, the severe weather threat should remain minimal.

Then, a Winter Flashback

The rain chances will diminish after sunrise on Sunday, then get ready for a return to winter. Temperatures will hover in the 50s and low 60s throughout the day on Sunday.

Cloud cover and a strong north wind will just make it seem that much colder. Hopefully, we will get some sunshine a little later in the day on Sunday. So, you would be well advised to wear something warm for church on Sunday, or if you're fishing the Big Bass Splash, be prepared for cold conditions and some very choppy waves.
