Rainfall estimates over East Texas through Wednesday evening. Rainfall estimates over East Texas through Wednesday evening.
TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

A Good Portion of East Texas is under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center for the rest of the day today, into early tomorrow morning. As a cold front moves through East Texas this evening and tonight, showers and a few strong to severe storms are possible along and ahead of the front. Gusty winds and large hail are the primary threats with the storms, however, the main threat over the next two days will be Flash Flooding.

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect until 5 AM tomorrow morning for Anderson, Henderson, Kaufman, Van Zandt, Rains, Hunt, Delta and Hopkins Counties...and from 7 PM tonight until 4 PM tomorrow for Cherokee, Rusk, Panola, Harrison, Gregg, Smith, Wood, Upshur, Camp, Marion, Cass, Morris, Titus and Franklin Counties.

Rainfall totals over the next 48 hours could be quite high with some totals nearing 6.00." Most of East Texas should receive from 2.00"-5.00" during that time period. If you live in an area that floods easily during heavy rainfall events, please make sure you have a plan to escape rapidly rising waters over the next few days. Over the past few weeks, there has been minor flooding over the NW sections of East Texas in Hunt, Hopkins, Delta and a few other counties. As the soil in some places in East Texas is nearly saturated already, additional heavy rainfall could cause flash flooding to occur very quickly. Please remain alert!!

After Wednesday, weather conditions improve rapidly, however, morning lows are expected to remain quite chilly through Friday.?
