Experts say severe weather, including thunderstorms and quarter- and larger-sized hail, is far more damaging in East Texas.

The National Weather Service warns of the potential for severe weather Friday afternoon and night in Anderson County and the surrounding area.

Golf-ball size hail, damaging winds, lightning, and tornadoes are possible, NWS Meteorologist Steve Fano said. “This will be a fast moving system, most likely moving through your area before midnight Friday.”

Palestine could experience storms as early as 4 p.m. with the main storm line moving through from 6-9 p.m. Strong storms and thunderstorms will continue through the night and possibly early Saturday morning.

Skies should begin to clear at noon Saturday.
