Severe storms possible Tuesday night

Storms arriving Tuesday night

A fast-moving cold front will sweep through the Piney Woods of Deep East Texas on Tuesday evening, bringing with it a good chance of showers and some strong-to-severe thunderstorms.

While a severe weather outbreak isn't expected this evening, any storm that does become severe has the potential to produce wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour and large hail.

Damaging wind gusts and brief, line-embedded tornadoes will be our primary concerns starting in the early afternoon across the western half of the area.

Today, winds are expected to increase with gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

The threat for severe weather and thunderstorms will end rapidly from northwest to southeast across the Tennessee Valley as the line exists region shortly after Midnight. Dress for wind chills in the 20s and possible flurries by Wednesday morning. Lower totals expected north with higher south.

Temperatures have warmed into the lower 80s this afternoon. Much cooler air will filter in behind the front overnight dropping lows into the 30s and 40s by sunrise on Wednesday.

Tuesday Evening: Heavier and more widespread rain is likely after 4pm.

Multi-rounds of storms are possible in three locations.

If you have outdoor plans for Friday or Saturday it would be best to make indoor alternatives in case rain occurs. It gets cold enough for some lake effect snow Wednesday night. However, we do not expect major impacts from any wintry weather this morning, as any mix should transition to just all rain.
