The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of East Texas under a slight risk for severe weather from 7 a.m. Saturday through 7 a.m. on Sunday with the best chances for strong to severe storms in our area, being Saturday evening and night. I would like for you to understand..the severe weather in Oklahoma and Missouri and other locations tonight, will not be the same for us, for tomorrow. The dynamics in the atmosphere will be different. The storms today/this evening are Super Cell Thunderstorms...the storms we get in East Texas tomorrow will be frontal thunderstorms...storms forming along a cold front. NOW, with that said, there is a chance for Severe Thunderstorms, Hail and very gusty, thunderstorms winds. The tornado threat for tomorrow, for East Texas will be very small, not out of the picture, but very small
A cold front is expected to pass through East Texas on Saturday evening, bringing with it, a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms. The main threat is likely to be strong thunderstorm winds and some pockets of large hail.
The tornado risk is extremely low for this time frame. Most of the significant weather should be well to our northeast, in places like Arkansas, Southeastern Missouri, Northern Mississippi as well as Western Kentucky and Western Tennessee.
We will continue to monitor the weather for you, as we always do, and if any changes occur, we will make sure you know about them.
