EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - A potent spring storm will be pulling into the Plains on Thursday, providing much of the Deep South with another round of severe weather.
Most of the widespread severe thunderstorms will remain off to our northeast, where areas from Texarkana to Shreveport and areas north of there are under a "moderate" risk for severe storms. That means they are more likely to see large hail, damaging winds, and even a few tornadoes.
For us in Deep East Texas, we are in a "slight" risk for severe weather, which means while it is not likely to see severe storms, it is certainly possible, given all the dynamics and ingredients we have in place. Our main threats will be small hail and damaging winds.
The best time frame to see these storms develop over the Piney Woods will be from 4-8pm.
Some rain and thunder may linger through the overnight hours before a cold front scours out the moisture and brings us some lower humidity on Friday.
With another chance for severe weather on Thursday, make sure you download our FREE KTRE weather app. If you don't have a smart phone, you can sign up for our FREE ThunderCall service. Both of these features will alert you to severe weather the instant a severe weather warning is issued where you live. Even if you do not receive bad weather in your neighborhood, having one or both of these products will be useful for future severe weather outbreaks later on in the spring season.
