I hope everyone is enjoying more basketball than is healthy to watch, but by golly, there might be weather going on.
At 453PM, CT, Longview was reporting a temperature of 63 degrees with overcast conditions. A developing system over southern Texas was extending a tendril of rain that was lying off to the west of Longview and was likely on its way into the area. A sharp upper level trough with weak flow through it is leading to a generally disorganized system, but one laden with very heavy rainfall.
Precipitation will really amplify overnight as flow into the surface feature begins to route from the Gulf of Mexico. The wave, fortunately, will be short enough that the rainfall won’t linger for days, but tomorrow has the potential to be an extremely rainy day. The primary area of low pressure will shift off to the east by Sunday afternoon, however without a strong flow behind the system to motivate things, there may be light rain and clouds continuing through Sunday evening as well. Fortunately, another consequence of the weak flow will be a failure to import much cold air behind the system.
