Rio Grande Valley residents are waking up to a light show as thunderstorms developed over Cameron County and just off the coast.
A stationary front has brought much-needed rain to the area. The Lower Valley has seen the majority of the rainfall thus far Friday with some areas estimated close to 4 inches.
For the rest of Friday, we expect to see a similar pattern of isolated showers continuing to move through as a low-pressure system stays well to our west.
The Rio Grande Valley has been placed in a “Marginal Risk” for severe weather to develop through the rest of the day today and into Saturday evening.

Some pockets of heavy rainfall and the potential for hail and damaging winds are the reasoning behind the Valley being placed in the risk category.
While we may see anywhere between 1-2 inches of rain, flooding does not remain a concern as dry soil should soak up all the rainfall.
Overcast skies will also keep temperatures below normal around the low 80 degree mark.
