Hello East Texas. I hope you’ve had a good week so far. We’ve had very cold nights the past few nights. We'll stay above freezing ahead of our next cold front, which will then bring cooler temperatures again.
All eyes were on the weather this past weekend with the threat of East Texas seeing wintry weather. Some of us did see sleet, freezing rain, and perhaps even some snow. But we were very fortunate it was not worse.
After 3 very warm days across East Texas, get ready for a strong cold front, a cold rain, and some wintry precipitation. What I will do in this blog post is to give you day-by-day details and what you can expect through this weekend.
NowCast: Wednesday Evening through Overnight:
Cloud cover will continue to increase across East Texas as we go into the evening and overnight hours. There will be just a slight chance of rain before midnight.
This past Sunday, a powerful storm system moved across the Midwest and Ohio Valley regions. As early as 8:40 AM Central Time, the first Tornado Watch was issued for much of Illinois and a few counties in surrounding states.
