Strong to severe thunderstorms developed early this morning across our southern counties and have now moved into Louisiana. We are watching a few storms trying to develop to our west this morning. There is a slight chance we could see an isolated storm or two during the morning hours. This afternoon's forecast is a bit tricky. There are a couple of outflow boundaries floating around East Texas today. During the peak afternoon heating there is a very small chance a thunderstorm could develop. The best chance of this happening is south of a Palestine to Rusk to Center line. I have all the details on what you can expect with the weather where you live on Good Morning East Texas.
