Corsicana —

Significant parts of Texas are at risk of strong winds and storms, with possibly some small tornadoes forming.

Bill Bunting of the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center says much of the state on Tuesday will see strong winds and possibly some hail. Areas around Dallas, Austin, Houston, Abilene and Wichita Falls could all be affected by severe weather that is expected to move eastward throughout the day.

The far northeast part of the state is at the greatest risk of damage.
