As we all prepare for the upcoming weekend, the weather may play a role in our Sunday outdoor activities. Now, with that said...

Approximately ten days ago, in the StormTracker 7 + 7 Day Forecast that we provide for you each night on KLTV 7 news at 10, we mentioned that during the weekend of March 1 and 2, there was a chance for a cold front to move through, bringing with it chances for strong to severe thunderstorms. We said that March MAY come in like a lion.

Well, on Sunday, March 2, a moderately strong cold front is expected to pass through during the late morning or early afternoon hours. With this front, there is a chance for showers and isolated strong to severe thunderstorms.

The Storm Prediction Center is mentioning that the storms could begin to form over Eastern Texas during the late morning/early afternoon hours and spread into Louisiana by the afternoon/evening. Gusty winds, small hail and rainfall in the one-inch to two-inch range will be possible as this front moves through.

The chances for isolated tornadoes has not even come into the picture yet, but it this changes, we will be the first to let you know. Rain chances will likely continue into the first half of the day on Monday. Fingers Crossed! We need more rain.

Now would be a good time to sign up for StormTracker 7 ThunderCall, The Call Before the Storm as well as downloading your KLTV StormTracker weather app. Download the app by texting "APP7" to 77997.
