Severe Storms, Tornadoes, Possible Today in East Texas
Tornado season in East Texas usually falls from March through May, but, those that have lived in the Pineywoods for a while know that the threat of tornadoes in November and December is not out of the ordinary.
A round of severe storms is expected to blossom across Deep East Texas between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. today (11/28). Although the highest threat for isolated tornadoes will be in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi, the residents of East Texas need to keep alert to changing weather conditions as well. Gusty winds up to 40-50 mph should be the greatest threat to us as the storms pass through.
For those concerned about the Lufkin Christmas Parade which is scheduled for this evening, the good news is that the chance of rainfall by this evening drops to less than 20% and clearing skies are expected by that time.
