A cold front is expected to pass through East Texas very quickly on Tuesday afternoon and evening. The front should be through most of East Texas midnight Tuesday night. The morning should be fairly quiet with just a few showers possible, then a disturbance is expected to make its way into the West-Central portions of East Texas shortly after 2 PM. Showers and isolated strong to severe storms will then begin to move through the area. Strong to severe storms are expected to occur along the cold front as well. Once the front moves through, the risk of severe weather should diminish.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of East Texas under a SLIGHT RISK for significant severe weather during this time. Very strong, thunderstorms winds are expected along with a few pockets of large hail. The risks for isolated tornadoes are very low at this time and the flash flooding risk is low as well due to the speed at which this system will be moving. Some areas may get up to 2" of rain, right through the central portions of East Texas, but most areas should get less than that during this time.
