We're a region divided by a very damp west, and a not-as-damp east.  The widest swath of rain action has been situated mainly in the Panhandle and the western Big Bend counties, where several inches of rain has fallen over the past 24 hours in some cases.  The western portion of the viewing region will continue to experience periods of downpours and additional rain accumulation through tonight and most of Independence Day.  There's a slight chance for a few stronger storms, but the heavy rain and local flooding resulting from it will remain as the primary hazards.

Lows tonight will be in the low to mid 70s, with highs tomorrow in the low to mid 80s west to close to 90° east.

Flood watches remain in place through Friday morning for most of the viewing area.  Some river water levels will increase, which may lead to future flood warnings along these various tributaries.
