[ April 27, 2017 ] National Weather Services confirms tornado in

The severe weather threat overall is fairly low and will mainly be confined to areas along and north of a Nacogdoches to Hemphill line. A west northwest wind will be 7 to 10 miles per hour. A few thunderstorms may linger into Monday. We could have an isolated shower or two, but the heat and humidity looks likely to hold off through the weekend, perhaps even longer.

We are still fine-tuning the more granular details of what we expect will happen Sunday night. Forecasters say thunderstorms are expected to develop Friday afternoon and sweep eastward across central Kansas and Oklahoma. Warm and humid air ahead of this storm system will allow for increasing instability and the threat of severe storms by late tonight, especially after 10pm Friday into the very early morning hours of Saturday. During the overnight hours into early Thursday, scattered showers and thunderstorms will move in, possibly waking some locals up. Events including heavy rain, tornadoes, hail storm, lightning strikes and damaging winds will occur over the aforementioned areas.

WEDNESDAY: Rain chances go up to 60% with a developing storm system.

This venture will be spearheaded by Thomas McInerney, a Yahoo director who carried out the Verizon deal. The breach also caused Verizon to shave $350 million off the previous sale price of $4.8 billion.

Thursday will be cooler, with a high in the mid 70s and low at night in the upper 50s, according to the weather service. The line will also be capable of producing very heavy rain and intense lightning. We'll keep you up-to-date on the latest through the afternoon to ensure you can safely enjoy your Saturday plans!

Sharon Keen, wife of pastor Bobby Keen, said most homes are high enough and won't be flooded if heavy rain falls. What this will mean for our area is cloudy days, with elevated rain chances for the second half of the week. I am concerned we could see some hail producers later next week so I want to give you a First Alert on that possibility.
