EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed ALL of East Texas under a slight risk for severe weather from 7 a.m. Thursday through 7 a.m Friday. The SPC may consider increasing a portion of the slight risk into a moderate risk, for portions of East Texas, when they update their outlook later today. If that is the case, we will let you know as soon as we know. The update will be issued sometime this evening.

The greatest threat, at this time, appears to be large hail and damaging, thunderstorm winds. There is a very slight risk for an isolated tornado as well as some flooding problems as the line of storms moves through our area. The time frame appears to be from about 5 p.m. Thursday through midnight Thursday.

A cold front is expected to be responsible for the storms that are expected to develop over the northern sections of ETX late tomorrow afternoon and continue to push through into the overnight hours.

As moisture from the Gulf of Mexico streams into East Texas during the day tomorrow, the atmosphere over our area will become very unstable as the front approaches from the NW. This would be a good time to go over your safely plans at home as well as at your place of business. Make sure that you know where to go IF a storm spawns a tornado. The basic rule of thumb is: a small, windowless, interior room in your home or business. Get as many walls between you and the outside. Also, as we head into tomorrow, make sure that you charge all of your batteries for your mobile devices.
