DEEP EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - We will stay mainly dry until a spring storm moves into the state on Saturday, bringing us an 80% chance to be on the receiving end of some heavy thunderstorms, some of which could turn severe late in the day. With that threat for severe weather throughout East Texas, we have a First Alert Weather Day still intact for the afternoon and early evening hours on Saturday.
Our main severe weather threats on Saturday afternoon and evening will be damaging winds and large hail. An isolated tornado is certainly possible, but not likely.
Behind this storm complex, we will hang on to a 30% chance of showers and isolated storms on Sunday as we will stay under the clouds for much of the day.
After a fairly dry day on Monday, another western storm will eject into the plains by next Tuesday, bringing us a 40% chance of a heavy downpour or thunderstorm late in the day.
After that, high pressure should build back in, leading to drier conditions to go along with warming temperatures late next week. In fact, many of us will be flirting with the ninety-degree mark by that time, a sign of summer being just around the corner.
