Today’s slight risk has been upgraded to an enhanced risk for southeast Texas and most of Louisiana. This upgrade was primarily driven by an increasing threat of wind damage with a line of storms currently located southwest of Houston. pic.twitter.com/pg8guBSbUa

A level 3 (out of 5) enhanced risk for severe weather has been outlined for southeast Texas and west Louisiana for this afternoon and evening.
The MCS currently tracking across the Texas Gulf Coast region is continuing to grow and become better organized.
The main threat is, and will continue to be, severe damaging winds gusts along the leading edge of the the MCS as it continues to track east.
However, a brief tornado or two within the squall line is also something to watch for.
