This morning skies were cloudy throughout the region. With deep low pressure over the Rocky Mountains, winds were breezy from the southeast at 15 to 25 mph, with higher gusts. This will maintain a flow of moist Gulf air into Texas and Oklahoma today, and as an upper level trough approaches, rain and a few thunderstorms will become more likely.
At 930 am, radar indicated areas of very light rain or sprinkles passing through our region. By early afternoon, however, heavier rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop from central Texas up into western North Texas and southern Oklahoma. This initial activity is not expected to be severe. The risk of severe weather will be greater in far western Oklahoma and far western North Texas during the late afternoon and evening.
