Moderate risk of severe storms today

Posted By Grant Dade - bio | email

TYLER, TX(KLTV) - Strong to severe thunderstorms will develop later this afternoon as a strong storm system moves across the Red River Valley. Severe storms developed to our west yesterday and moved across the northern counties of East Texas this morning. These storms will rapidly move out of the area by late morning in time for the atmosphere to heat up. As high temperatures approach the middle and upper 80s this afternoon, the atmosphere will become very energized. This energy will allow for storms to develop to our west once again this afternoon and move east into the area during the late afternoon and evening hours. Any storm that develops will likely produce very large hail, up to baseball size, and isolated tornadoes. The winds in the atmosphere are set up to where a strong tornado or two could develop today, especially north of I-20.

After today's round of severe weather we look to be in for another round of storms tomorrow. Just like today the atmosphere will be conducive for very large hail and tornadoes. An area of low pressure will develop near Dallas late tomorrow and move northeast towards Texarkana. This will increase the low level winds tomorrow evening giving areas of East Texas, especially north of I-20, a chance of strong tornadoes again.

If there is any good weather news over the next couple of day it is that some areas could see substantial rain over the next 48 hours. Areas along the I-30 corridor could see over 2 to 3 inches of rain before Wednesday morning with areas around Lufkin possibly seeing up to an inch of rain in heavier storms. Please stay tuned to the latest weather developments.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
