EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Tuesday looks to be a very spring-like day with a strong storm system moving into the region. The day will start with cloudy skies and some light rain or drizzle during the morning hours.

By midday and early afternoon, there will be breaks in the clouds. It will be breezy and warm with temperatures reaching the mid 70s. There is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms for parts of Deep East Texas. Only a few thunderstorms are expected to develop, but anything that does develop could become strong to severe with damaging winds, small hail and an isolated tornado possible.

Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible in East Texas on Tuesday, though the threat has shifted further to the east. A First Alert Weather Day will remain in effect for those south of Highway 7, or a line from Crockett to Nacogdoches to Center.


For those north of this line, including the Tyler, Longview, and Jacksonville areas, will no longer be under the First Alert Weather Day. Rather, the northern two thirds or so of East Texas will just face moderate to high disruptive weather. Isolated strong storms will be possible Tuesday afternoon, with the possibility for one or two severe storms, mainly in Deep East Texas. To echo previous forecasts, the higher severe weather threat on Tuesday is east of East Texas - in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

The majority of East Texas most likely won’t see thunderstorms and those storms that do develop will move out quickly Tuesday evening.
