I realize that strong to severe storms are rather commonplace in East Texas during the Spring season, but we sure could use an extended break from this nastiness. Unfortunately, we may have another go round of severe weather across parts of the Pineywoods this evening.

Storm Prediction Center

Forecasters are monitoring a cool front making its way to our area.  It will kick off some storms later in the day on Friday, and those storms will likely continue through the evening before moving eastward into Arkansas and Louisiana.

First, the bad news -

Winds gusting to near 80 mph, up to tennis ball sized hail, and tornadoes are all possible in these storms.

The good news -

As of Friday morning, meteorologists are putting our rain chances at only 20-30%.  So, wherever you are in Deep East Texas, there is only a slight chance that you'll even get rain.  However, if one of those storms finds you, it could become severe.  So, stay alert and listen to KFOX 955 for updates and download our KFOX 955 App to have weather bulletins sent to your phone.

Oh...and more good news, the weekend is looking beautiful with plenty of sunshine and highs near 80.
