Showers and thunderstorms continue today. This morning will mostly consist of moderate to heavy rain with a flooding threat. A round of strong to severe storms will arrive from the west later this evening and tonight.

Overnight thunderstorms brought more rain to an already saturated North Texas and more rain is expected every day this week.

According to the National Weather Service, there's an 80% chance of rain Monday for the region, with severe thunderstorms possible overnight. Locally heavy rainfall and lightning will be the main threats, but the stronger storms could produce large hail and gusty winds.

Widespread thunderstorms kick up again on Tuesday, some of which could be severe, with heavy rain expected Tuesday night that will likely result in flash flooding.

A flash flood warning is set to expire Wednesday afternoon. Rainfall totals of 3 to 8 inches are possible this week.

KXAS-TV meteorologist Brian James reported 2.13 inches of rain fell Sunday at Love Field, while 3.75 inches fell in Arlington and just over 2 inches in Duncanville.

The National Weather Service is investigating a possible tornado in Dallas on Sunday — in the same area devastated by a tornado in 2019. Cherie Hart told WFAA-TV that she and her husband took cover Sunday afternoon as they received storm warnings.

So far, according to WFAA, it appears that Hart's home is the only one to sustain damage."All I have is deja vu," Hart told WFAA's Matt Howerton. "I've seen this before. Lightning doesn't strike twice, but apparently, a tornado does."
