Scattered showers Wednesday, severe weather possible for E. Texas Thursday

Posted: Updated:
(KLTV) -

Afternoon showers will be arriving across East Texas as we move through your Wednesday afternoon. Look for scattered showers to be mainly light in nature. Scattered showers will continue across the area overnight and into your Thursday morning.

Portions of East Texas may be dealing with the threat of severe weather as we move into your Thursday afternoon. It looks like the threat will be focused across the northern half of the viewing area, along and north of Interstate 20. We can’t rule out a few isolated strong storms across the southern half of the viewing area.

A dryline will approach a warm and unstable airmass Thursday afternoon, developing thunderstorms across the region. Due to the timing and heating of the day, some of the storms could become strong or even severe. The main threats look to consist of damaging winds and large hail, although a few isolated tornadoes may become possible but mainly north of our area.

The best timing for storms across East Texas looks to arrive between noon and 6 p.m. Thursday. Storms should begin to develop around mid-morning to our southwest and move towards the northeast across East Texas during the afternoon hours.
