First Alert Weather Days extended through Saturday

First Alert Weather Days extended through Saturday

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - A cold front that moved through East Texas Wednesday has now stalled and will return northward over the same area today as a warm front.

Expect a few more waves of showers and thundershowers as the front returns.  Rain will once again be heavy at times, so flash flooding will continue to be a concern.  Flash flooding concerns also continue into the day Friday with a few more waves of showers, heavy at times, moving over East Texas.

By Saturday, a strong upper-level trough of low pressure begins to move into the south-central United States and will bring enough energy to East Texas for scattered thunderstorms.  The thunderstorms are expected to develop in a line along and just ahead of another advancing cold front.  High winds are likely with these storms, along with the possibility of isolated tornadoes.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, has issued a slight risk for severe storms for parts of East Texas for Saturday afternoon and evening.  Once the cold front moves through the region late Saturday night, skies will begin to clear with a much more quiet day Sunday.
