Severe weather expected today

A Tornado Watch is in effect until 4pm this afternoon for Anderson, Cherokee and Nacogdoches counties in East Texas.  A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until Sunday morning for most of East Texas as well.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a slow moving storm system can be expected during the afternoon and evening hours.  While we do have a slight risk of severe weather, the biggest threat at this time appears to be the possibility of flooding.  This will especially be true in areas that have already received quite a bit of rainfall from Friday's storms.  An additional 1-3 inches of rain is not out of the question from storms this afternoon.

It appears at this time much of the activity will be moving out later this evening and into the overnight hours.  Once that occurs, the weather conditions will start to improve.  Sunday looks right now to just be cloudy and breezy.  High pressure will then build in and next week is looking much drier and we will be warming up by the end of the week.
