Springtime means storm time in East Texas. We are in the typical weather pattern where we have the potential of seeing severe weather move through our area that could consist of high winds, torrential down pours, hail and a tornado as well.
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.
It's that time of the year when our chances of strong to severe thunderstorms increase because of the changing of the seasons! This St. Patrick's Day is no different because there is a chance of scattered strong thunderstorms throughout the day for East Texas.
Many parts of East Texas were woken up this morning to a round of strong thunderstorms that produced locally heavy rainfall and quite a bit of lightning and thunder. That trend will hopefully continue through the weekend and bring cooler temperatures to East Texas too.
