This does not mean that the rest of East Texas won’t see severe storms...it is just the higher risk area. Strong thunderstorm winds near 60 mph are likely along with a few isolated tornadoes as well as some hail and brief/heavy rainfall.

Once the front moves through your area, the threat of severe storms will likely end.
