⛈ Slight risk for Severe Storms today across east Texas/Louisiana...
A quick moving low pressure system continues to move east across the deep south creating havoc with snow to the north. A few severe storms are possible this afternoon and evening as a cold front pushes into East Texas.

While we aren't expecting a significant Tornado outbreak, there is a chance of one or two isolated tornadoes, especially where the cold front intersects any southerly wind component. Otherwise, severe wind gusts to 65mph will be common.
