East Texas Football Games Move to Tonight with Heavy Rain Threat Friday
We're getting down to the nitty gritty of the high school football season. District championships are on the line. Playoff positioning is on the line. Its an important time of the season. That means that if inclement weather could affect the outcome of a game, there is the possibility it could be moved. Heavy rain is expected to move in Friday across East Texas that could disturb the games Friday night. For that reason, several games have been moved to tonight.
Weather Moving into East Texas
A storm system is expected to move through tomorrow that will bring some much needed rain to East Texas. Some areas in East Texas could get just over an inch of rain, others could receive less. Some thunderstorms could also be a part of this weather system. That means the possibility of lightning. If lightning is seen during a game, that game would have to be delayed.
Games Have Been Moved
A combination of the threat for heavy rain and the possibility of thunderstorms has caused several Friday night East Texas football games to be moved to tonight.
