Chance of Severe Storms Overnight
There’s a threat of severe storms into the overnight hours for the East Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana according the Weather Channel.
Severe thunderstorms will remain a possibility through the night as a potent upper-level system associated with a cold front, slides into the Deep South causing a disturbance in the atmosphere. Dr. Greg Forbes from the Nation Weather Service gives us a TOR:CON of 2 into the overnight hours.
What is TOR:CON?
TOR:CON Value Descriptions
8+ Very high probability of a tornado
6 – High probability of a tornado
4 – Moderate chance of a tornado nearby, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible
2 – Low chance of a tornado, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible

The Rest of The Week:
Tuesday is looking to be mostly sunny in higher 60′s with no real weather threats.
Wednesday will likely be rainy and chilly at around 50 degrees, with severe storms developing in West and Central Texas, moving into East Texas overnight on Wednesday with Dr. Forbes giving us a TOR:CON value of 2 to 3.
Thursday things start to get interesting again we are to expect: scattered severe thunderstorms in the upper coastal Texas region as well as Louisiana and southwest Mississippi. The national weather service gives us a TOR:CON – 3 to 4 for East Texas on Thursday.
