Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected for the remainder of the night tonight. Just a few showers are possible (20%) mainly over the southern 1/2 of East Texas. During the day on Tuesday, mostly cloudy skies are likely with just a few more showers and/or thundershowers over our area.
A First Alert Weather Day has been declared for our Wednesday as a very similar weather system moves into our area. The storm system that moved through last Friday and the storm system that is expected on Wednesday are very similar in nature. Shower and thunderstorms, some of which are expected to be strong to severe are expected to move into the area starting during the early morning hours and should continue into the evening/early overnight time frame on Wednesday. Strong, gusty thunderstorms winds are expected along with some large hail, frequent lightning and even a few isolated tornadoes. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of East Texas in a SLIGHT RISK for strong to severe storms and the far eastern sections are under an ENHANCED RISK for these storms to occur. We will continue to monitor this weather system for you very closely over the next few days.
Beyond this, fairly nice and stable weather is expected... at least through Saturday. Another storm system is possible on Sunday and Monday of next week, bringing with it more rain and strong storms. We will, as always, watch this system for you as well.
