Early this Friday afternoon severe storms are starting to pop up across the Hill Country and North Central Texas, and forecasters are expecting some of the storms to bring nasty weather to the Pineywoods by later this afternoon and evening. 

An upper level disturbance will usher in widespread rain and thunderstorms and conditions look to be favorable for a few of these storms to reach severe limits.  The biggest threat will be in the form of large hail and damaging winds, however, an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

East Texas should be in the clear of the storms by midnight tonight and we're expecting sunshine on Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70's.
