EAST TX (KTRE) – Strong to severe thunderstorms from Central Texas could roll through East Texas Tuesday afternoon and evening.

"Any storms that develop, will have the potential to produce damaging winds in excess of 50 mph, along with small hail," Chief Meteorologist Brad Hlozek said.

The threat for some strong thunderstorms will last through the evening hours before a cold front swings through the area overnight.  Once the front arrives, the storm threat will end and skies will begin to clear out.

"This will set us up for a nice Wednesday, with plenty of sunshine and highs in the upper 60's, near 70.  It will be breezy however, with north winds gusting up to 15 to 20 mph at times," Hlozek said.

The rest of the week will be rain-free and rather tranquil with clear nights and mostly sunny days.  Temperatures will stay on the mild side as well with cool nights and mild afternoons.

Get up to date weather information anytime you want it at KTRE.com's Storm Tracker 9 Weather Center and on KTRE's East Texas News at 5, 6 and 10pm.

Meanwhile, our neighbors to our east are getting hit hard.  A flash flood watch is in effect for parts of Louisiana.  The threat includes locally heavy rainfall, damaging thunderstorm winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes.  In fact, rainfall totals of 2" to 4" not out of the question, with isolated totals running as high as 4" to 6."

About 12:30 Tuesday afternoon heavy storms rolled through the northern part of East Baton Rouge parish, flooding streets and low lying area in Zachary, which is just north of Baton Rouge.
