Thunderstorms are moving across the region as of early Friday morning. These storms have had a history of gusty winds, hail, heavy rain, and frequent lightning. One round will push across the region before daybreak, continuing through the morning commute.

Some models are suggesting another convective system rolling across the region around midday. This complex of storms (as of 3am Friday morning) was west of Houston. If these hold together, we may be in for another round of heavy rain. Then, the cold front is forecast to push through later this evening. Right now the timing looks to be closer to 9 or 10pm, so if you have evening plans, it's suggested you wrap up early.
