EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -

From record high temperatures to strong, gusty south winds, East Texas has seen a little bit of everything so far today.

We will add the threat for strong to severe thunderstorms to the mix as well as a strong cold front blasts through the Piney Woods later tonight.

The timing for these strong line of thunderstorms looks to range from 10pm this evening through 2am Thursday morning.  Areas along and east of the Highway 59 corridor stand the best chance of seeing damaging winds due to the forward motion of these storms. 

The strong winds we have experienced today will be around again tomorrow.  The only difference will be the wind direction.  Once the front blows through your neighborhood tonight, winds will shift from the south to the north, ushering in much colder air for the end of the week.

As the saying goes, 'the roller coaster ride will continue.'  That means a change in wardrobe will be appropriate as we go from shorts and t-shirts back to long sleeves and jackets.
