TEXAS, USA — Good evening, We've got a pleasant evening playing out across East Texas. Light rain this morning gave way to partly cloudy skies and temperatures managed to make it near 70 at Tyler and Longview. Lufkin made it into the mid 70s.
Our next severe weather threat arrives Friday. Another large and powerful storm moves into the central U.S. This storm brings with it some powerful upper level winds that will help strong or severe thunderstorms develop Friday afternoon. Friday will be a CBS 19 Eye on Weather Day as we track the chance for severe weather.
Overnight, any gaps we have in the cloud cover get filled in. We'll wake up to an overcast sky. The sky may look threatning but really the chance of rain or drizzle is low. It'll be a warmer morning with temperatures in the upper 50s.
We wake up to southeast winds and they become breezy throughout the day. The wind direction will increase the humidity and the cloud cover. A wave energy will pass through East Texas. This means widely scattered thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening. There is low-end severe weather threat Thursday. The bigger threat sets up for Friday afternoon. High temperatures Thursday return to the mid and upper-70s.
