Trough/Dry Line Poses Concerns

A trough associated with a low pressure system is creating a possible dry line in Texas. Below is a visible satellite imagery at time of publishing.
In Texas, we definitely see a line separating what appears to be dry air and moist air. Should that be a dry line, a severe weather situation would definitely be possible.
Wind shear indicates that any storms that develop would have potential to have rotation.
CAPE values are at 3000 around a section of this trof/dry line, so any storms developing could pose a serious tornadic risk.
