As we head into the morning, most showers have pushed out of the METRO area. We're seeing our LAST round of storms off to the west into the mountains.

Showers and T-storms possible through-out the morning commute for Midland/Odessa + Trans-Pecos from this last round of storms located over the Davis Mountains. The biggest flooding threat looks to be SOUTH of the Pecos River. Strongest storms will go south too.

Rain and t-storms will be on and off after 6/7A until dinner-time on your Wednesday. Severe threat is very low. Flooding risk is moderate, especially into the Trans-Pecos. We'll have more updates coming up on Wake Up West Texas.
