The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center has pushed much of the risks for severe weather this afternoon into east and southeast Texas. Most of the atmosphere over north central Texas, including the DFW metroplex, has been worked over pretty good after last night’s rain and storm event, so no severe weather is predicted to impact the DFW metro area today. Folks further east, especially along the TX/LA border…Lufkin, Nacogdoches, San Augustine and surrounding communities…could be in the bullseye for severe weather this evening with large hail and damaging winds as the main threats as a squall line develops and tracks south/southeast through the area. Outside the enhanced risk area, strong storms are also possible, but with somewhat lesser degree of severity. Nevertheless, theres still a chance of damaging winds as the squall line continues into southeast Texas later this evening. Folks within the risk areas will need to keep an eye to the sky this evening, especially if you have outdoor plans.
