A very dangerous situation looks to be brewing across the eastern half of Texas for this Memorial Day afternoon and night. Almost all of Deep East Texas is under a tornado watch until 10 this evening. Tyler, Jasper, and Sabine counties are not included at this time.
Welcome to East Texas, home of pine trees, chicken farms, and numerous lakes. Trouble is most of those lakes are people's yards. And it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is yet another flash of lightning.
A cold front and vigorous upper level storm system is bringing severe weather across the Pineywoods this morning, this includes tornadoes. We'll keep you up to date with an ongoing timeline of watches and warnings. A tornado watch is in effect across all of East Texas through mid-morning.
This morning, we saw some scattered storms and downpours across Deep East Texas. They may have just been the appetizer. The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch until 10 p.m. for portions of the Pineywoods. Those areas included are outlined in the graph above.
Yup, you're reading the map correctly. Between 4-7 inches of rain could fall in the Pineywoods over the next week. I don't know about you, but I've already gotten my riding mower stuck at least a half dozen times.
Just a quick look at the Angelina River, Neches River, or Lake Sam Rayburn will immediately tell you that we've had a very wet Winter. It looks like Spring, at least the first few days of it, will be wet, as well.
Thursday will bring about an inch or two of rain across much of the Pineywoods. That may not sound like to big of a flooding threat across the region, but when that comes just 3 days after a 3-4 inch rainfall, then there could be problems.
