Showers and thunderstorms possible Sunday evening

After a very nice couple of days, a few showers and thunderstorms are expected in parts of East Texas Sunday evening.

The atmosphere has become somewhat unstable with the abundance of sunshine. This mixed in with the increase of low level moisture over the past few days will help a few showers and thunderstorms develop Sunday evening.

A cluster of showers and thunderstorms has already pushed through the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and continues to move to the south and east. These showers and thunderstorms have had a history of lightning, hail and at times heavy rainfall. As this system continues to push southeast it will develop into a convective line of thunderstorms. This will push into parts of East Texas this evening.

What we should expect is showers continuing through the evening, this will also include lightning and hail is certainly possible. The high wind threat is very minimal, but it is there.
