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??!!
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.
Well, the good news is that we haven't had any tornado warnings issued in Texas since before 7pm, but a severe thunderstorm watch is in place for Angelina, Nacogdoches, Shelby, Tyler, Cherokee, Rusk, Sabine, Panola, Newton, Jasper, and San Augustine counties until 3am. Another severe thunderstorm watch is in place until 1am for Polk, Trinity, and Houston counties.
