TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - As we venture into the afternoon/evening hours, the chances for stronger storms to develop/move into East Texas continues.
As was the case earlier today, these storms are expected to produce some large to very large hail, up to 2-3 inches in diameter. Not all areas will see this hail, but for those that do, damage is likely to cars, anything exposed to the storms, roofs, building, etc. If you can park your vehicle under a car port or into a garage, that would be best.
Also, Strong Thunderstorm Winds are expected in the strongest storms as well. Periods of very heavy rainfall/frequent lightning expected in the more potent storms. An isolated tornado or two remains a possibility.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed a good portion of East Texas under an Enhanced risk for strong/severe storms for the rest of the day today.
This is a 30% Chance for significant severe Weather. This area is generally from Center to Tyler to Greenville.
The remainder of ETX is under a Slight Risk for significant severe storms. This is a 15% chance for significant severe weather. Please remain Weather Alert for the rest of today.
