An area of low pressure is spinning across the Hill Country this morning and promises to bring a chance of storms to the area. Our Western Counties are already under a flash flood watch as we anticipate at least 2 inches of rain across our western counties with isolated areas receiving between 2 and 4 inches of rain.
In addition to the heavy rain threat, there is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms with the main threat being gusty winds and weak tornadoes. The area of low pressure to our south is acting very much like a tropical low. As with any land falling tropical system, there is a chance of a few tornadoes and we see that threat today across East Texas, mainly our Southwestern Counties from Athens to Alto and southwest.
