The watch is in effect until 9 tonight.

The primary threats in the watch area include scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph and Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter.

At 3:30, a thunderstorm cluster associated with a mid-level disturbance is expected to continue across eastern portions of Texas into northwest Louisiana this afternoon into the evening.

A belt of enhanced mid-level flow coupled with a warm and unstable airmass ahead of these thunderstorms will probably sustain this thunderstorm cluster into the evening. The stronger thunderstorm cores will be potentially capable of locally severe and damaging gusts and possibly large hail.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 50 statute miles north and south of a line from 45 miles westsouthwest of Tyler, Texas to 20 miles north northeast of Natchitoches, Louisiana.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes.
