We're on alert for heavy rain and severe storms across southeast Texas.

Today's rain chance has been increased to 40 percent. Meteorologist Travis Herzog says some of our computer models have picked up on the increased moisture levels and are now showing a line of storms blowing in this afternoon from the west.

More widespread storms are expected on Friday. Then some rain will likely stick around into Saturday. Most neighborhoods are likely to get two to three inches of rain over the two days.

The biggest severe weather threats will be heavy, flooding rains and damaging winds, but hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.

ABC13 Chief Meteorologist Tim Heller says Mother Nature should deliver a nice day for Mother's Day though.
