A large and anomalous upper-level low is digging into northern Mexico this morning, and will slowly move southeastward through the next couple of days.
At the surface, a low-pressure system associated with the upper-low will move into western Texas by late this afternoon. A warm, moist, and unstable air mass across the Southern Plains and Mississippi Valley ahead of this system will result in the development of widespread showers and thunderstorms today from the Southern Plains to the great lakes.
Some thunderstorms may become severe across portions of the Southern Plains, where the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is forecasting a slight to enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms.
Additionally, flash flooding is possible across portions of the Southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley.
