A **TORNADO WATCH** has been issued for Angelina, Cherokee, Nacogdoches, Rusk, Sabine, San Augustine, and Shelby counties through 10pm this evening.
Severe weather will be possible this evening in the Piney Woods as strong to severe storms sink southward from North Texas. The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail. However, an isolated tornado cannot completely be ruled out due to the dynamics and parameters we have in place. The stormy weather will linger through the overnight hours, but show a weakening trend as we progress through the night.
Tuesday night will be mostly cloudy with a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms. A few storms could be severe. Lows in the upper 60's. Winds will be breezy and out of the south at 15 to 20 mph.
Wednesday will be partly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80's. Winds will be northeast at 5 mph.
A few showers and storms will be possible on Wednesday as the weak frontal boundary shifts south through East Texas. Once we get past Wednesday, high pressure will start to exert itself over the Lone Star State, leading to mainly dry conditions and a return to our normal, summer-like heat and humidity. In the meantime, you can stay updated with the weather on both KTRE-TV, ktre.com, and on our facebook and twitter pages, too.
