Isolated severe storms possible this afternoon

TYLER, TX (KLTV)   A warm front has made its way through the majority of ETX this afternoon and as an area of low pressure strengthens this afternoon to our west, a couple of isolated storms could develop mainly north of I-20 with most nearer to I-30. Most of the strongest storms today/tonight should be in Oklahoma and over the Red River counties north of Dallas/Ft. Worth. The winds in the atmosphere this afternoon will allow for any storm that develops to rotate and become what we call a supercell.  Large hail and gusty winds will be likely with any storm that can develop today with an isolated tornado or two not out of the question.  The greatest risk of severe weather will be along and north of an Emory to Quitman to Marshall line.  Again this is a conditional threat of severe weather.  There is a good chance no storms will develop at all keeping East Texas safe from severe weather.  However, if a storm can develop, it will likely become severe.  Stay tuned to your East Texas News Leader for the latest.
