Severe Weather A Possiblility Wednesday Afternoon
Spring time in East Texas can be rough weather wise at times and it appears as if we could be in for a round of severe weather Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening and then clearing out Thursday morning.
UPDATED - East Texas could be under the gun for a few rounds of showers and storms throughout the afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the potential for severe weather moving through a good part of East Texas from slight to enhanced which on a scale from 1 to 5, we moved from a 2 to a 3. This enhanced area indicates there could be damaging winds in excess of 60 mph, hail up to an inch in diameter along with torrential rain that could lead to flash flooding and the possibility of an isolated tornado.
