332 AM CDT Sun Apr 22 2018

.DISCUSSION...Showers and storms are moving into the area from the west this morning.
They will continue to spread east through the rest of the morning and afternoon.
Some storms could be severe with damaging winds being the main concern. Much of
the rain will be out of the area by this evening, though some locations
in the Golden Triangle could see a few light showers linger into the late
evening or early overnight periods. No fog formation is expected this morning,
just low clouds. /28/
