Severe Storms Expected in East Texas Wednesday Afternoon, Evening
Didn't we just get through doing this?
It's Spring time in East Texas, so another round of severe storms should not come as a shock. Just a few days after Sunday's round of hail and winds, the Pineywoods could be in for another dose of severe weather this Wednesday afternoon and evening.
According to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, a strong upper level storm system will help shift a cold front across our area Wednesday. This will set off showers and thunderstorms across Deep East Texas, some of which will likely be severe. Large hail is the main threat from these storms, but damaging winds and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
Flash flooding will also be among the threats, with 1-3 inches of rainfall possible through Thursday morning. In fact, a Flash Flood Watch has already been issued in anticipation of these heavy downpours. This watch includes Shelby, Sabine, and San Augustine Counties and is in place 4 pm Wednesday through 7am Thursday.
