The area of severe storms that produced several tornadoes earlier this evening near Eustace, Caney City and Canton has now moved into Louisiana. We still have a Severe Thunderstorm WATCH for far northeast Texas in place until 6am which will cover the potential for additional severe storm development ahead of the cold front as it continues to move east overnight. Further south, we have a small area of strong to severe storms across south central Texas over Beeville which we will continue to monitor this evening. Hail and damaging winds will be the greatest threat with this small storm complex, but we also can’t rule out a tornado or two either. Elsewhere, the front has pretty much undercut most of the storms, so aside from the northeast Texas threat overnight, and the small area of strong storms across south central Texas, the remainder of the state should be relatively quiet. Much cooler air and gusty winds are following behind the front and temps behind it will drop down into the 30s across the panhandle and far west Texas, 40s across west central Texas, and low to mid 50s for much of north Texas. Highs on Sunday will be cooler and drier except for deep south Texas which will still see highs in the 80s tomorrow. Rain chances won’t return again until mid-week, so we’ll be able to enjoy several days of peaceful weather before needing to discuss rain or storm chances again.
