Rain and thunderstorms this afternoon in Southeast Texas

Saturday is the pick of the weekend ahead of a wet Sunday.

BEAUMONT, Texas — A pair of weak cold fronts will bring slightly cooler weather ahead of a return to warm, humid conditions as we say goodbye to March.

Today, a 50% coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms is forecast mainly during the afternoon hours with improvement after about 5 pm ahead of a weak cold front.  There's a slight risk of severe weather over the Lakes Area however, the bulk of that potential is further to the north and east of the area.

Cold front sweeps through SE Texas this evening turning winds to the west filtering in a drier air mass.

Saturday Morning will be cool - in the middle to upper 50's however, the afternoon is expected to be warm with low humidity thanks to a late March sun angle.  If you are going to be outdoors, remember the sunscreen!

Sunday Morning will be cool however, numerous showers and thunderstorms are forecast during the day.  This is due to the former cold front lifting back to the north and possibly stalling over SE Texas providing a lifting mechanism for the precipitation.

Monday Morning, another cold front will march through SE Texas with a 30% coverage of showers and thunderstorms.

Cooler weather is forecast Tuesday the 28th and Wednesday the 29th with lows in the 50's and highs in the middle 70's...about normal for this time of year.
