EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - Here is a look at the weather where you live: Good morning, East Texas! Today starts off chilly in the lower 40s but is thankfully nowhere near as cold as how yesterday started. Today we will see a fair mix of sun and clouds as temperatures warm into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees in the afternoon. Skies will remain dry for most of the day until spotty showers move in late tonight and early tomorrow morning. We’ll see better coverage of scattered showers to start off our day tomorrow before storm chances quickly increase just after lunchtime, so a First Alert Weather Day has been declared from Friday afternoon through very early Saturday morning. Showers and strong to severe storms become likely throughout the afternoon and evening hours of our Friday, and some storms could become severe by developing large hail, damaging gusty winds, and even a few tornados. Isolated flash flooding will be possible as well as storms have the potential of dropping anywhere from .50″ to 2.50″ in some spots. Rain will end by early Saturday morning and skies clear by the afternoon. Skies remain sunny and temperatures warm into the lower 80s by Monday. Clouds move back by next Tuesday and it looks like another round of showers and strong storms will be possible in the evening and lasting through Wednesday morning so keep an ear out for more updates to that forecast as well. Friends, spring is still in full effect here in East Texas so please keep your head on a swivel and keep a look out for more updates to the forecast for our First Alert Weather Day.
