DALLAS — A storm system continued its slow creep over much of the state, bringing with it torrential rains.

The upper-level disturbance drifted into the Texas Panhandle on Monday, combining with Gulf moisture to trigger heavy rain across Southeast Texas and drought-parched Central Texas, along with severe thunderstorms with occasional tornadoes across arid West Texas.

Nearly 6 inches of rain fell in the South Plains, Concho Valley, Hill Country and Edwards Plateau of West Texas, while 1 to 1½ inches of rain fell in a drought-parched belt from Vernon to Lubbock. The National Weather Service received reports of weak tornadoes scattered from Midland to San Angelo and near Wharton on the coastal plain and Bastrop in Central Texas. Minor damage was reported, but no one was injured.
