1-21-2016 NWS Weather Briefing

The front that passed our area yesterday had begun movement back to the North and Northeast this morning, but has now stalled on a line from Lufkin to Shreveport. With the really cold air moving down, there is the potential for a collision with the warm air and creating more of the T-storms that we saw earlier this morning. Most of the activity will move to the North and East and clear out by late this evening. Some wrap around could occur through tomorrow morning.
The really cold(low 30's) and windy conditions(15-25 mph with higher gusts) will arrive late this evening as expected.  Our ground temps are in the 52 degree range so any wrap around moisture that falls will not accumulate as frozen precipitation. 
However, in Northeast Texas, North of IH 20 & IH30 there could be some issues for frozen stuff on bridges, overpasses, grassy, and muddy areas through tomorrow morning. Be advised if you are traveling toward NE Texas, SE OK, North La, and Arkansas you could experience the above mentioned weather. 
If you are traveling into Central and South Louisiana today and tomorrow there is an advisory for heavy rain in T-storms, large hail, high winds, and some isolated tornadoes as shown in the graphical picture below of the target areas for the severe weather.
The good news is that it will clear out and our temps will return to the more normal 60's for our highs and 30's for lows.  Chances for rain does look to show back up on Monday and Tuesday of next week....then clearing and dry conditions once again for the balance of the work week.
