We are waking up this Friday morning to cloudy skies and misty conditions. It is very muggy outside with most areas this morning right around 70 degrees. Look for the drizzle and mist to last for a few more hours before we start to see breaks in the low clouds. These breaks will allow us to warm into the lower 80s this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to develop around midday and sweep across East Texas. Some of these storms could be severe with large hail and gusty winds. There is a slight chance of an isolated tornado or two across East Texas this afternoon as well.
The front will not move through the area until Sunday morning so there will continue to be a chance of strong to severe storms until then. It does look right now as though conditions will dry out for Sunday afternoon making the weekend not a total wash out.
