Low pressure moving out of Texas will increase the showers and thunderstorms across the region. 

Storms that develop on the NE side of the low with peak daytime heating will have the best chance for developing rotation. Any tornado risk will end later tonight with the loss of daytime heating. 

The rainy pattern will continue for the next several days with drier weather anticipated by the end of the week and the weekend. 

Flash flooding will be the dominant severe weather risk this week.
