Strong Storms for East Texas and Louisiana Wednesday

31 Oct 2017, 2:29 pm

Parts of Texas and Louisiana will begin the month of November with the chance for strong showers and thunderstorms.  Some of these storms could turn severe and the Storm Prediction Center has placed a marginal risk of severe weather over eastern Texas and western Louisiana.

What to Expect?

A frontal boundary will approach the area Tuesday, but most of the active weather will stay towards the Texas Gulf Coast.  Shower and storm chances will then increase greatly early Wednesday morning as the approach cold front stalls over this area.  This stationary boundary will be the focus for widespread rain and eventually thunderstorms.

Severe Weather Risks

A marginal risk of severe weather means isolated severe thunderstorms are possible.  If any storms turn severe on Wednesday they could contain winds of 40-60 mph and hail up to 1 inch in diameter.   The highest severe risk will likely be damaging winds and an isolated tornado.

Timing

The timing for these storms to fire up will be Wednesday morning through Wednesday afternoon.  Once the sun goes down, most of the storms will lose their strength and weaken quickly.
