August 5, 2022

An inverted upper trough extending from Central Louisiana into Deep East Texas became absorbed into a weak shear axis across Northeast Louisiana and East Texas on August 5th. These upper level features tapped into a very hot, moist, and unstable air mass with the aid of diurnal heating, with widely scattered showers and thunderstorms developing across East Texas and North Louisiana. Given the elevated nature of these storms, damaging downbursts resulted across the cities of Longview and Mount Pleasant, resulting in numerous trees and power lines downed with some damage to buildings before the storms diminished during the evening.

May 24, 2020

Numerous showers and thunderstorms developed during the afternoon of May 24th, as an upper level disturbance rotated north across East-Central Texas, ahead of a large upper level trough of low pressure slowly drifting east over much of the Rockies. Moderate instability developed during the afternoon is response to diurnal heating and a very moist air mass in place, such that some of these storms became severe, producing hail and multiple reports of damaging winds which downed trees and power lines across East Texas, Northwest Louisiana, and Southeast Oklahoma. These storms eventually weakened by early evening as the air mass stabilized in response to the more widespread rain cooled air.

June 19, 2019

A weakening complex of showers and thunderstorms entered portions of Northeast Texas during the pre-dawn hours of June 19th, but a strong southwesterly low level jet feeding into these storms interacted with adequate instability still in place for these storms to re-intensify over portions of East Texas, such that they became severe producing damaging winds that downed trees and power lines, which eventually spread into portions of Northwest Louisiana before weakening again shortly after daybreak. These storms also spawned a brief, weak tornado over Harrison County just northwest of the Nesbitt community. ||This complex of thunderstorms left behind a surface boundary which lifted north across Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, and Southwest Arkansas ahead of an approaching upper level shortwave trough. Strong heating near this surface boundary resulted in the development of moderate instability, with large scale forcing ahead of the approaching trough contributing to the development of a second round of severe thunderstorms during the late afternoon through the evening hours across East Texas. The storms produced damaging winds and large hail, with localized flash flooding in Northeast Wood County before finally weakening during the early morning hours of June 20th.

July 3, 2018

Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed during the afternoon of July 3rd, as an upper level low pressure area and its associated trough of low pressure, drifted west across much of Louisiana and Southern Arkansas, before entering East Texas late in the day. Temperatures climbed into the upper 90s to in excess of 100 degrees by early afternoon once these showers and thunderstorms developed, further enhancing instability and allowing some of these storms to become severe as they interacted with other storms across portions of extreme Southwest Arkansas and East Texas. These storms produced several damaging downbursts which downed trees and power lines across portions of East Texas, as they spread west throughout the late afternoon hours. These storms eventually moved out of the area and weakened during the evening.

May 28, 2017

Overnight showers and thunderstorms which held together into the morning hours of Sunday May 28th, moved into Northern Louisiana from the northwest during the morning hours after daybreak. These storms mostly dissipated by midday, leaving numerous outflow boundaries across the area. Meanwhile, a warm front moving northward into the area resulted in dew points quickly rising from the mid 60s to the mid 70s with its passage. This front stalled out near the Interstate 30 corridor of Northeast Texas, and south of this boundary, scattered thunderstorms quickly developed by mid-afternoon and spread east across East Texas near and south of the Interstate 20 corridor. These storms rapidly intensified during peak afternoon heating and instability, and produced numerous reports of wind damage across extreme Eastern Texas and even two short EF-1 tornadoes near and east of Longview. Training storms moving west to east also producing brief flash flooding at some locations. In the storms' wake, over 103,000 customers were left without power across East Texas and Western Louisiana in the AEP SWEPCO coverage area, which was the 4th worst storm (with outages) in the company's 105 year history.
