Weather Talk: Monday forecast for July 4th
(KETK) - Tyler, Tx — Hello everyone. Leading up to July 4th, we want you to have the most accurate and up-to-date forecast so you can plan your day.
Here is Monday’s edition of “The July Fourth Forecast”…
Today forecast models (GFS and European), are continuing to advertise scattered showers and storms for East Texas during the day.
On Friday morning, the GFS shows a few light showers possibly lingering over East Texas.
Scattered showers and storms look to develop in the afternoon hours for us. These look to last through the evening hours, according to the GFS.
The European model shows rain in East Texas by the afternoon and evening hours, with greater coverage in Deep East Texas.
Afternoon highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s, but 80s will prevail if we see rainfall take place. Sky condition: partly to mostly cloudy. Winds: out of the East and Southeast at 5-10 miles per hour.
With both models showing consistency in the rain chances from Sunday and today, we will need to keep scattered showers and storms in the forecast for July 4th. The overall chance of rain is about 30%, with better coverage chances for rain in Deep East Texas (according to the models).
I’ll provide another update Tuesday evening. Until then, I will post additional information about the rain chances from the late evening forecast models on my Facebook page and on Twitter. Follow me for additional updates.
You can get the up-to-date forecast by visiting the KETK Weather Page.
I will provide another updated forecast on Tuesday evening. At that time, we will be able to include additional model data from the NAM and our RPM model.
