Clouds and off and on rain chances will be possible throughout the morning, afternoon and evening. Luckily the severe storm risk is very low, but the heavy rain could lead to some issues.
You can see the shower and storm chances will last all day and night with this particular set-up. There could be some lightning embedded withing this activity, so you will want to use caution if you plan on being outdoors today. Cities like El Paso and Midland are included with the rainy forecast.
