TYLER, Texas (KETK) – East Texas has seen a busy Fall season: a few severe storm events and a few rounds of cold air causing a frost & light freeze. Sandwiched between those events, we’ve seen temperatures going up and down. It’s no different as we approach the middle of November: another cold front arriving Thursday morning, a few severe storms possible, then cooler with more sunshine by the weekend.

Severe Weather Outlook

This is not going to be a widespread severe weather event. The main region of concern would be mostly north of I-20. For now, a “Marginal Risk” of severe weather extends into Deep East Texas, and a “Slight Risk” for our far NW counties. The greatest risk area will be north of I-20 where several severe storms are possible. Farther south, the threat decreases but is not zero. The main threat for any storm is strong wind gusts, but hail cannot be ruled out along with an isolated tornado risk.

Weather Set-Up

The cause of this will come from a cold front that is near Wichita Falls to west of Abilene, and moving east. Behind the front, cooler and drier air. Ahead of the front is the moisture and weather dynamics to produce severe storms.

Primary threats for a severe storm would be wind gusts and hail, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
