Scattered showers and storms are possible across the Rio Grande Valley, South Texas, Southwest Texas, and Far West Texas. Isolated storms are possible this afternoon and evening across the Panhandle. An increase in activity is possible tonight in the Texas Panhandle as strong storms move south out of Kansas. Activity is also expected to continue tonight across East Texas, Southeast Texas, South Texas, and Southwest Texas. Severe weather is not expected with most activity today. We will, however, need to keep an eye on the Kansas activity. A few of those storms may be strong as they move towards the Texas Panhandle tonight. In fact Paige and I may be chasing up in Northern Kansas today.
