After a wet weekend, blue skies are on the horizon.

According to the National Weather Service-Shreveport, Tyler was hit with 2.75 inches of rain, but KYTX CBS19 Meteorologist Doc Deason said those totals are taken at the Tyler Pounds Regional Airport, and some areas of town may have received more rainfall.

According to the National Weather Service, Tyler received .07 inches on Thursday, 1.42 inches on Friday, .06 inches on Saturday and 1.2 inches on Sunday - for a total of 2.75 inches.

Southern areas of the county received greater rainfall on Saturday. Deason said his personal rain gauge in Hollytree read 2.23 inches for Saturday, and Dr. Bill Brown, who reports totals to Deason, said he received 3.36 inches at Emerald Bay, near Flint.

Deason said Lindale and Whitehouse were hit with more rain on Sunday than Tyler.

The last chance for rain this week is on Tuesday, with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 1 p.m. The day will be mostly sunny, with a high of 87 and a low of 67, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday will be sunny with a high of 85 and a low of 62.
