Isolated severe storms this evening

Posted By Grant Dade - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Isolated severe thunderstorms still appear likely later this afternoon and evening across parts of East Texas, key word being "isolated." A strong area of low pressure was developing this morning in the Texas Panhandle and will move northeast into south central Kansas by this evening. This will cause a dryline to move through East Texas later this afternoon and evening followed by a cold front late tonight. It is along the dryline where we can expect isolated thunderstorms to develop from northern Oklahoma down the I-35 corridor into north central Texas between 4PM and 6PM this afternoon. As these isolated storms move into East Texas, mainly north of I-20 between 6PM and 10PM, the atmosphere will be very conducive for supercell thunderstorms to develop. This means that any storm that does develop will likely produce very large hail, up to baseball size, and isolated tornadoes. Areas along and north of I-30 are under a moderate risk of severe storms today while areas along and north of I-20 are under a slight risk of severe storms.

Again most areas today will not see any severe weather much less the rain we desperately need. We will be watching the latest development on these storms and you can always get the latest information at KLTV and KLTV.com.
