Slight risk for severe weather this afternoon and early evening

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for the following counties until 9:00 PM: Camp, Cass, Franklin, Gregg, Harrison, Marion, Morris, Panola, Rusk, Smith, Tutus, Upshur and Wood.

As a cold front approaches East Texas this evening, chances for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will occur. These will be small storms that could produce small hail, gusty winds near 60 mph and even a few isolated tornadoes. A few storms have already shown signs of tornadic development over the far southern sections of Deep East Texas and Southeast Texas.

The dry line preceding the front continues to allow for showers and thundershowers to build quickly along that boundary, and as the line moves through our area, chances for isolated strong to severe storms will then occur. These storms should move rapidly toward the ENE at 35-45 mph, so they will move through very quickly.

Once the front moves through, the severe weather threat will diminish rapidly and the weather conditions overnight tonight and tomorrow will be quite calm.

Another risk for severe weather will occur late on Wednesday and again early on Thursday as another front moves through. This area appears, at this time, to be the stronger of the two.
