The calendar may read late November but Mother Nature isn`t fooling anyone in eastern Texas and northern Louisiana that winter is just round the corner. Instead, fresh storms are multiplying in coverage this evening. A few will be severe.

A cold front crossing into eastern Texas is the catalyst for thunderstorm developing in a northeast to southwest line from near Shreveport, La., to Austin, Texas. As the storms move east, a few will contain wind gusts of 55 to 60 mph and hail as large as golf balls. Places like Houston and Tyler, Texas, and Monroe and Alexandria, La., have the best risk for seeing a severe storm.

Storms will continue to develop as they edge closer to the Texas Gulf Coast and through northern Louisiana before losing their punch before sunrise Tuesday. The front will then sweep across the Deep South during the day Tuesday. Although coverage won`t be particularly significant and the severe threat will be minimal, a few could motor into places like New Orleans, Mobile, Ala., and Pensacola, Fla.

The Lower Mississippi Valley hasn`t seen any severe weather since the middle of the month. The last reports of high winds and tornadoes occurred on November 11.
