Strong storms still look likely tomorrow in East Texas because of a strong cold front. Timing looks to be early morning for our western areas with most places seeing storms by around mid-morning. Storms may linger into the afternoon in far southern and eastern areas. All types of severe weather are possible with damaging winds and hail the main threats.
After the line of storms moves through, the weather will turn windy and cooler as a strong cold front brings much cooler air to East Texas.
A strong cold front will move into East Texas Thursday and with thunderstorms likely along this front, the chance exists for a few storms to become strong to severe. Warm, moist air in place over East Texas will fuel the storms as they move through.
The line of thunderstorms is expected to develop along and ahead of the cold front early tomorrow morning in areas of Central Texas, along I-35. The storms will push into East Texas by late morning and early afternoon. Heavy rainfall, frequent lightning and small hail are possible with these thunderstorms. The main threat will be high winds along the leading edge of the line of storms. Isolated tornadoes along the line can not be ruled out.
The KETK Live Doppler Skywatch Weather Team will be tracking the storms throughout the day. Tune in to KETK Today starting at 5am Thursday morning for the very latest.
