TUESDAY’S SEVERE SETUP:
Our severe risk today will be driven by the rich Gulf moisture and the humidity we have in East Texas. A cold front will arrive by mid-morning into the afternoon, helping storm development south of I-20 and mostly focused in Deep East Texas.
Thus, the Storm Prediction Center has Toldeo Bend under a level 2 “Slight Risk”, with a “Marginal Risk” from Marshall to Trinity.
The High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR model) continues to advertise the best potential storm threat starting around 9 AM. These storms develop with the front and could turn strong or severe. Either way, Deep East Texas is going to receive more rain that they do not need after last week! Storms ending in the afternoon, then breezy and cooler.
