Tornados, wind and hail possible again

After a bumpy afternoon and evening Wednesday, things could get a bit dicey Thursday afternoon once again. The rain from last night cooled the lower levels of the atmosphere causing a boundary, or front to sag south across the Gulf coast. Out to our west we are watching a disturbance move through the upper levels of the atmosphere and this will help drag that front north as a warm front later this afternoon. There are two areas of concern for severe weather Thursday afternoon. The first is across the southern counties of East Texas where this disturbance will move through this evening. This will cause the air to rise and form strong to severe thunderstorms, starting around 5:00PM in our extreme southwestern counties. The main threat with these storms will be strong gusty winds and isolated weak tornadoes. Click here to read more...
