A cold front is moving through East Texas today. The combination of heat and humidity plus the front will aid in storm development through the evening – an isolated severe storm risk.
Our main concern with storms will be the wind threat, gusts over 30 mph will be possible. Lightning and heavy rain will also be a factor with these storms. They are moving southeast at 20 mph.
LIVE DOPPLER RADAR:
The risk for severe weather is very low this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has our far eastern counties in the marginal risk – but any place a storm occurs could be strong to possibly severe with all the humidity in the air.
HEAT & HUMIDITY:
If you don’t see storms, you have the heat! Today has now become the hottest day for Tyler – reaching 96 again this afternoon as of 2 PM. The official high will be released later today. Stay hydrated and cool.
