Storms increasing today, heavy rain expected

Weather Talk

TYLER, Texas (KETK) – We’re keeping an eye on storms today that will likely impact outdoor plans.

These storms are associated with the upper disturbance to our northeast that will bring in the rain to the southwest toward East Texas – a pattern we typically do not see.

With this setup for Saturday, a few strong storms could be possible with this next round, but it won’t be widespread. Heavy rain will be our primary concern. Rain is moving in this morning, should increase in coverage this afternoon, especially south of I-20.

The primary weather threat will be heavy rain, but if a severe storm does develop, it can contain gusty winds and hail. Tornado threat staying very low.
