Strong storms and heavy rain possible today and tonight

StormTracker Weather

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - 

Later this evening, an upper air disturbance will move closer to the area providing the lift necessary for showers and thunderstorms to develop. As this happens our threat of severe weather will begin to increase. Areas north of the cold front will have a threat of hail with any of the stronger storms. Areas along and south of the front will have a threat of hail, gusty winds, and an isolated tornado. In addition to the severe threat, much of East Texas will receive some much needed rain. On average most places will receive between 0.50" and 1.00" of rain with a few local areas as high as 2.00", especially north of I-20. Please stay with KLTV 7 and KLTV.com throughout the day for the latest information on severe weather as this forecast will change as we head through the day.
