East Texas (KLTV/KTRE) - Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day. Early this morning strong to severe thunderstorms have begun to move through East Texas. Currently a Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued until 9:00 AM for all of East Texas. A north-south organized line of strong to severe thunderstorms associated with a surface low will push through our area, with the line arriving in our western counties around 1 AM, and pushing out of Deep East Texas by the early afternoon. At this time, damaging gusty winds and large hail are the primary threats, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Our easternmost counties also have a flash flood threat as we could see an additional 1.50″-2.50″ of rain. A cold front associated with the surface low will push out any remaining moisture out of East Texas, with clearing skies and temperatures cooling into the upper 40s overnight. Friday we will see nothing but sunshine and a mild afternoon with highs in the upper 60s, then even more sunshine for the weekend with upper 70s for your Saturday. A cool start to your Easter Sunday with morning lows in the middle 50s before warming to near 80 degrees in the afternoon. Cloud cover returns to the forecast on Monday with slight chances for a few showers in the later evening hours. Showers and thundershowers become likely as we head into the middle part of the work week.
