Lufkin and Nacogdoches Under Tornado Watch Until 10 Tonight
Right now, the skies above Lufkin and Nacogdoches appear friendly enough, but Doppler Radar indicates a line of storms heading our way, with rain expected to begin somewhere in the neighborhood of 9 P.M.
And because of the this volatility, The National Weather Service has recently issued a "Tornado Watch" for our area until 10 P.M., with thunder boomers possibly throughout the entire night.
A "Tornado Watch" means that atmospheric conditions are present for circular, rotating thunderstorms capable of producing a tornado. In the event, the "watch" is upgraded to a "warning", take shelter immediately. A "Tornado Warning" means there has either been radar detection, or human sighting, or both, of a tornado on the ground.
