Strong storms possible tonight across East Texas
A strong area of low pressure is developing to our northwest today and will drag a cold from through the area early tomorrow morning. As this front moves through showers and storms will develop along and ahead of the boundary. The atmosphere is favorable for strong gusty winds and hail as this line moves through. There is also a slight chance an isolated tornado could develop with these storms however, the over threat of tornadoes appears to be fairly low with this system. If more moisture than is forecast surges north ahead of this system, the threat for tornadoes could increase early tomorrow morning as the wind field in the atmosphere becomes more favorable for tornado development. We will be monitoring this developing situation throughout the evening and overnight tonight. Behind this system partly cloudy skies will move into East Texas tomorrow with cooler temperatures.
We will see another chance of storms late Saturday but at this time moisture seems to be a limiting factor in severe weather. We could see an isolated strong storm late Saturday but widespread severe weather is not anticipated at this time.
