A strong cool front is making its way across the mid-section of the United States and that will mean some relief from the above average temperatures by Wednesday. However, it also means showers and thunderstorms with some areas getting over 5 inches of rain.
Don't put away the heavy jackets just yet. A strong cold front has stormed across East Texas Monday morning bringing temperatures into the 50s with wind chills 10-15 degrees below that. And now we have the possibility of ICE??!!
Forecasters are calling for another round of severe storms in the Pineywoods by Thursday afternoon and evening. Once again, high winds, hail, and deadly lightning are expected to be the biggest threats.
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.
It seems that most of the folks I've talked to are more than ready for Spring to get here. The warmer weather is welcome especially when considering the 4 ice/snow events that we had over the past 2 months. Be careful what you wish for.
Sleet, snow, and freezing rain are possible again in the Pineywoods, but as is usually the case, you'll probably be running the air coniditioner by the end of the week. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for portions of East Texas beginning late tonight.
Will we be seeing more pictures like this Tuesday? Winter weather appears to be a certainty across the Pineywoods as a strong Arctic blast is moving across East Texas today bringing strong winds and colder temperatures. Then, the precipitation will start early Tuesday morning.
