Severe Thunderstorm Watches Severe Thunderstorm Watches
EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Thunderstorms will continue to move in from the north over East Texas Wednesday evening; some may possibly be severe.

The storms in East Texas are moving to the south around 45 mph, are producing strong winds, heavy rain, frequent lightning, and some small hail. As these storms continue to progress to the south, they will begin to move into the Southern sections of East Texas Wednesday within the next few hours. 

Severe Thunderstorm Watches have been issued for Harrison, Rains, Hopkins, Marion, Upshur, Gregg, Hunt, Morris, Smith, and Wood Counties until 10:00 p.m. 

Anderson, Cherokee, Henderson, Houston, Kaufman, Nacogdoches, Panola, Rusk, Shelby, and Van Zandt Counties will be under Severe Thunderstorm Watches until 12 a.m.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the southern sections of East Texas under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather through 7 a.m. Thursday, most of the threat should diminish by midnight.

The cold front will stall to our north before moving east, so temperatures won't cool in the next few days. The warming trend will continue, with highs nearing triple digits. 

A heat advisory will be in effect from 12 p.m. Thursday until 9 p.m. Friday for Anderson, Henderson, Van Zandt, Rains, Kaufman, Hunt, and Hopkins Counties. High temperatures, near triple digits, combined with light winds, and high humidity, will raise heat index values (what it feels like outside) near 105 Thursday and Friday afternoons. Please be careful if you have any outdoor plans, especially for those susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Make sure your outdoor pets have plenty of fresh water to drink, as well.
