First Alert Weather Day: 2 rounds of severe weather expected on Thursday
EAST TEXAS, Texas (KLTV) - Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day.
A First Alert Weather Day is in effect for Thursday, as we are likely to see strong/severe thunderstorms moving into East Texas as early as the late morning hours through the afternoon with round one, and then during the evening and into the overnight hours with round two.
A cold front is expected to swiftly move through ETX Thursday evening allowing the storms to move out fairly quickly.
As mentioned yesterday, an ENHANCED RISK was added to the threat for severe weather for tomorrow over the northern half of East Texas.
This is a three out of five in the risk category. The southern half of East Texas is under a SLIGHT RISK, or three out of five in the risk category.
Greatest risk remains Strong/Gusty Thunderstorm Winds of 70 mph or more as the stronger storms move through.
There remains a chance for a few isolated tornadoes, as well as pockets of large hail. Some Flash Flooding will be possible as rainfall totals of three inches will be possible in some areas.
As the front moves through the northern areas around midnight, most of the rain/storms will move into deep East Texas (southern East Texas).
The rain and storms will likely move out of deep East Texas sometime in the mid-morning hours.
