Overview: Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop across parts of West and West Central Texas tonight and grow into a large thunderstorm complex that will move from west to east across the state. Ahead of this complex, isolated showers and thunderstorms may develop across Southeast Texas that pose a damaging wind or brief tornado threat before the main thunderstorm complex moves across the region. This complex will move quickly east, with dry and warm conditions expected across the region after 12 PM.

While the thunderstorm complex will be capable of heavy rain, the speed at which it moves across the region will minimize any flooding threat these storms pose.
