Severe storms are erupting across the southern Plains Monday, threatening to bring additional heavy rain to areas that sustained life-threatening flooding over the weekend.
Along with an elevated risk of flash flooding, damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning strikes may occur. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
Those looking to spend part of the holiday in the outdoors should do so with caution.
San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Abilene, Texas; Shreveport and Lake Charles, Louisiana; Oklahoma City and McAlester, Oklahoma, and Fort Smith and Little Rock, Arkansas, are some of the cities that could be hit by severe storms.
