Another strong storm system will be moving through the Central U.S. late this week. 

An amplified upper level trough of low pressure will push a cold front through East Texas Friday night.  Ahead of the cold front, thunderstorms are likely.  Ample moisture will be in place here in East Texas with warm, humid conditions. 

Energy will begin increasing with convergence along a dryline Friday afternoon and evening. The dryline will be the focus for thunderstorm development late in the day.  Thunderstorms that develop out ahead of the advancing cold front will have the chance to become strong to severe. 

High winds and hail will be threats with these storms, and isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out. 

Risks and timing could change as details become more clear closer to the end of the week.  Stay tuned for the latest forecast.
