    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Most of the rain will be to our west over in Texas, and along the Sabine River. There will not be as much rain in places to our east. Parishes like Allen, and Jeff Davis may only see some drizzle and light rain at times. Western Cameron, Calcasieu, Beauregard, and western Vernon parishes will likely have more rain throughout the day. This will be mostly rain, with storms unlikely.
