Thankfully…things will be much quieter today with just a gusty wind and lightning threat as a large line of storms across central and southeast Texas continues to work its way east southeast through the early afternoon hours.  So far, rainfall rates have stayed below flash flood criteria with just minor flooding and ponding on roadways expected within the heaviest bands.  As we get closer to peak daytime heating, we could see a few cells become strong into southeast Texas and present a microburst threat, but other than that, pretty tame compared to what we had yesterday across north Texas.  Here’s a look at the latest update from the Storm Prediction Center with just a Marginal Risk for today for southern, southeast and coastal areas.  The overall pattern will remain stormy this week with chances for storms across west Texas and the panhandle region early in the week then into northern Texas by the middle of the week.  We’ll have more details on those chances in upcoming daily blogs, so stay tuned!
