Wednesday's weather: Thunderstorms later this morning followed by much cooler air. Temps will drop into the 50s this afternoon

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Big changes are heading our way as a strong cold front will move through the area this morning.

Out ahead of this front temperatures will remain in the 70s with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms.  A few of these storms may produce small hail and high winds but right now it appears the greatest severe weather threat will be off to our East.

Temperatures this afternoon will drop down into the 50s.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and chilly.  Lows will drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s.  Thursday will be mostly sunny and cool with highs in the lower to middle 60s.
