A Weak Cold Front will move into East Texas during the day on Friday. This front will move into the area during the late morning/afternoon hours on Friday. Along and ahead of this front, the air across East Texas will be warm and fairly unstable allowing a few isolated thunderstorms to form.
A few of these may reach strong to severe levels. Greatest risks at this time appear to be strong winds and some large hail. Isolated tornadoes are not out of the question, but the chances at this time remain fairly low.
Most of the strongest storms are likely to occur to the East of East Texas, over Northern Louisiana and Southern Arkansas, but a few may form in our area, mainly over the northern sections of East Texas, generally north of a Crocket to Carthage line. Flash Flooding is not likely. Rainfall amounts should remain low as these storms should be moving quickly.
On Saturday, a few scattered showers and thunderstorms could occur across East Texas, with the majority of them being over the southern sections. A few may be strong, but we are not expecting much in the way of severe storms at this time.
On Sunday, as we await the next cold front early on Monday morning, chances for showers and thunderstorms will once again be on the increase. Some of these could become strong to severe across portions of East Texas. Once again, strong and gusty thunderstorm winds along with large hail will be possible. We can not rule out an isolated tornado on Sunday. Flash Flooding is not likely as these storms should move fairly quickly.
We will update you several times throughout the next few days. Please stay tuned and remain Weather Alert throughout the weekend.
