Please remain Weather Alert during the day tomorrow, especially as we warm up during the afternoon hours.

Parts of deep East Texas and the northwestern-most sections of East Texas are under a SLIGHT RISK (15% chance for significant severe weather) during the day as well.

Once we get into the evening hours, the storms should weaken and exit East Texas. Rainfall totals of 1.00″-2.50″ are still expected with some areas getting a bit more and some a bit less.
