Heavy showers and thunderstorms continue to move into the Pineywoods this morning.  The leading edge of these storms extends from near Longview to Alto to Kennard to Huntsville.  Upwards of 5 inches of rain or more could fall in some areas of East Texas, a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Wednesday morning.  Severe storms are also a possibility even though there are no active warnings for the Pineywoods.

Heavy rain should start falling in the immediate Lufkin/Nacogdoches area around 7 this morning.

MONDAY, 3/19

 

There are several things you can count on in the Spring time in the Pineywoods — yellow pollen on everything, beautiful azalea and dogwood blooms, and severe storms.

Tuesday and Tuesday night, it looks like we could be in store for up to 5 inches of rain in some areas of Deep East Texas.  Isolated areas of large hail and tornadoes are also possible.
