The CBS19 Weather Experts have identified Friday, Jan. 12, as an Eye on Weather Day. CBS19 meteorologist Sara Blue advises that a line of storms will move through East Texas from around 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Friday. These storms have the potential to bring straight-line winds, hail, and even tornadoes. While rainfall may not be significant, the ingredients for severe weather are present.

As the storms pass through the region, power outages are expected. This could create additional challenges for residents as a polar air mass moves in behind the severe weather.
