Thursday, August 24th through Tuesday, August 29th
Thunderstorms will continue to shift well south of I-20 for
Thursday, but begin to lift back northward on Friday.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Harvey will continue to strengthen and make landfall along the Texas Coastal Bend by Friday night. Harvey is modeled to move northeastward into East Texas and South Louisiana this weekend into next week.
At this time, rainfall amounts of six to ten inches are expected across portions of Deep East Texas and adjacent Central Louisiana, with isolated higher amounts possible. Lesser amounts are expected further north in our area.
If these rainfall amounts pan out, flash flooding as well as river flooding will be likely. However, uncertainty is high with this forecast, and adjustments to rainfall amounts and timing are likely over the next few days.

“A cold front will provide us with a few showers over the next few days. It will also serve to take a slight edge off the heat, too. The front will stall nearby, serving as a barrier or road block for Harvey. That means many parts of East and Southeast Texas could see several rounds of heavy rainfall.” According to Meteorologist Brad Hlozek of KTRE Weather reports,
