Widespread rain fell on the South and Rolling Plains late yesterday and early this morning. There were a handful of severe weather reports from the northwest corner of the KCBD viewing area Monday evening. You'll find rain and storm reports below.

The potential for additional measurable rain is marginal. We will likely see an isolated thunderstorm or two pop up this afternoon or evening, but the vast majority of the viewing area will remain rain-free. I expect similar conditions Wednesday afternoon and early evening. There is information this morning that indicates another thunderstorm and shower complex could drift across the KCBD viewing area Thursday night.
