We are waking up to a very cool start this morning with most areas in the middle to upper 40s. The coolest spot I could find was out at the UT-HSCT weather net site at the University Health Science Center in Tyler with 41 degrees. With plenty of sunshine today we will see temperatures reach the upper 70s to near 80 this afternoon. Winds will begin to increase out of the south bringing in Gulf moisture. Speaking of winds, tomorrow will be warm and very windy with highs reaching the middle 80s. Winds tomorrow afternoon will be out of the south around 20 to 25 mph gusting as high as 40 mph at times.
It looks as though the stage is being set for a prolonged threat of severe weather starting Friday. Right now, most of East Texas is under a slight risk of severe weather for both Friday and Saturday. This could continue through next Monday when a cold front will move through and dry us out. Stay tuned for the latest as we are climatologically entering our peak for severe weather in East Texas.
