Odds for potentially gusty storms will spike later Sunday into Sunday night before tranquility returns Monday. "You're definitely going to want to bundle up if you have early morning plans Sunday".
Afternoon would actually be worse because that would give the atmosphere more time to heat and create more instability. Please have multiple ways to receive severe weather information. The rise in the risk category gives confidence in strong to severe storms in East Texas, especially in northeastern portions of the area. Gardner said the storms could bring damaging winds, isolated tornadoes and heavy rain. Sunday will be a washout with rainfall totals ultimately reaching 1"-2"+ inches across the area". Our high temperatures on Thursday will be in the lower to mid 50s. Unfortunately, the warm front won't make much progress to the north, and that means an end to the spring-like weather we've had the last couple of days.
It's another quiet morning on radar with mainly clear skies to start the day. If there is any wind, the temperatures could feel more like upper teens to low 20s. Don't put that winter coat away just yet! Expect partly cloudy skies through the day on Friday. The high will be near 48 with a south southwest wind of 10 to 13 miles per hour, gusting as high as 20 miles per hour. Gusts as strong or stronger than 50 miles per hour are possible throughout the afternoon that can easily toss around loose objects outside.
The WSFA First Alert Weather Team has declared a First Alert Weather Day in anticipation of widespread heavy rain and strong to severe thunderstorms.
Strong to severe storms are likely with damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes possible early Saturday. Care to guess when the next chance of rain will be?
Plenty of sun, breezy and MUCH COOLER. Our temperatures will climb into the lower to mid 80s. The new work week will start off cooler and clearer with gradual warming after. Lows around 62. Highs around 78.
