White Christmas in East Texas? – Not the Kind We’re Hoping For
Late Christmas Eve and into the morning hours of Christmas Day, parts of East Texas may experience a White Christmas, however, this is NOT the kind you would like to see. A strong cold front will be pushing through our region Christmas Day bringing with it the possibility of severe storms, with the main threat being large hail, as indicated in the map above. So, while this could be the first time in a long time that ice has fallen from the sky in East Texas on Christmas, it’s not good news because this hail will be associated with severe storms that will also bring the chance of damaging winds, heavy rain, and even an isolated tornado is possible.
It will be much colder Christmas night with a low around 30 and the high on the day after Christmas should only reach the upper 40’s.
