The later we go through the week, the Gulf of Mexico will open up and we’ll have plenty of moisture to interact with for eastern KELOLAND. By Friday, the chance gets ramped up to 50% in eastern KELOLAND. In fact, there will be a good chance for thunderstorms and heavy rain at that time.
Rain totals will be over an inch in eastern KELOLAND through Saturday.
