Texas is getting the hammer today. A tightly wound storm is bowling through the Lone Star State this morning with a warm front extending out to the Gulf Coast. Heavy rain with frequent lightning has been falling since last night, and there was a tornado watch for San Antonio to Houston up to Waco earlier this morning. The rain has caused some flash flooding in those areas, and the whole rain shield is moving to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri today. Travel delays will start to mount in Dallas and Houston today with all the rough weather, so heads up.
The rest of the country seems quiet until you get to the Pacific Northwest. More morning snow is falling over the Washington/Oregon Cascades, and rain is pelting the coast from northern California to Washington. It’ll be a breezy day once again up there too.
Those are the two hot spots in the Lower 48 to look out for, see ya out there!
