Austin weather: Severe storms risk, tornadoes possible in some areas

The rain is back for the first time in a week and half. Expect on and off light rain through early afternoon. 

Isolated storms could bubble up over Eastern counties where there is a slight risk of severe storms. 

Most of the severe weather will remain in Southeast Texas where small and short-lived tornadoes are the main threats. 

Rain totals will be low and under a quarter of an inch. 

Things are expected to dry out late this afternoon with a little bit of sunshine and highs in the low 70s.
