Easter Sunday forecast: Slight rain chances

HOUSTON - Easter is just days away and it appears like we may need to have back-up plans.

It will be a warm day with near average temperatures, but there is a slight chance of rain in Southeast Texas.

Another disturbance is poised to sweep in this weekend.

As of Tuesday, forecast models aren't agreeing on the timing of rain. For now, it appears the rain chances will start Saturday night and last through Sunday.

The northern and western areas will have a 30 percent chance of rain -- that includes Huntsville, Bryan, Navasota and Columbus.

From about Livingston to Katy to Wharton and then towards the coast, there is a 20 percent chance of rain.

There is a low chance of thunderstorm activity, but the rain should be light and not a lot of accumulation is expected.

Daytime highs will linger around 80 degrees. The normal high for Houston is 81 degrees, that puts the city right on par for what is expected for this time of year.

The record for April 20 is 93 degrees set in 1987 with a record low of 39 set just last year.

The record rainfall amount is 2.70 inches back in 1985. Unless the thunderstorm outlook changes, it doesn't appear as if we will be getting that much rain.
