Flooding Rains Possible on Thursday for Deep East Texas
Thursday will bring about an inch or two of rain across much of the Pineywoods. That may not sound like to big of a flooding threat across the region, but when that comes just 3 days after a 3-4 inch rainfall, then there could be problems.
The biggest threat of heavy rains should start Thursday morning around 7 and continue until the late afternoon hours. Thunderstorms in the area are not out of the question. River flood warnings are already in place for Angelina, Neches, and other surrounding streams and this will only increase the river bottom flooding over the next week.
The good news is that the heaviest rainfall totals should be in Louisiana and Arkansas. The better news is that the weekend should by sunny and warmer.
