Thunderstorms are producing severe flooding and the threat of tornadoes in the Plains from Deep South Texas to Kansas.
An area well primed for severe weather is being crossed by an upper disturbance, resulting in a large amount of thunderstorm activity from Kansas to the Mexican border, AccuWeather Meteorologist Evan Duffey
The best threat for severe weather overnight will be near the Red River Valley to Southeast Texas.
Damaging winds, torrential downpours and an isolated tornado are all in the realm of possibilities, Duffey said.
