Cloudy and misty conditions are greeting us this morning across East Texas as a low level jet stream brings plenty of moisture to the area. This afternoon we will see partly to mostly cloudy skies with thunderstorms developing. A few of these storms could be severe. High temperatures should reach the middle 70s this afternoon. If we see a few more clouds today highs will be lower and this will also make our severe weather threat lower. If we see more breaks in the clouds, allowing temperatures to climb higher than the middle 70s, then our severe weather threat will be higher. You want to keep tuning in throughout the day as details become available.
Storms will move out of the area late tonight setting the stage for a very nice Saturday. We will be partly cloudy with highs reaching the middle 70s. On Easter, our cold front that moves through tonight will move back to the north as a warm front. Highs will reach near 80 degrees and we could see an isolated thunderstorm late in the day.
