First Alert Weather day issued for Tuesday

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - A quick-moving cold front will move into East Texas by early afternoon today.

As it encounters warm, moist air in place over our region, instability will increase with showers and thunderstorms developing ahead of the front and along the front.  There is a chance that a few of the storms that develop, especially those ahead of the cold front, could become strong to severe.

The fast-moving nature of the front will limit the flash flood threat but will increase the threat for strong, damaging winds.  Some small hail and an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

The rain will end from northwest to southeast tonight with clearing skies through tomorrow morning.
