Looks like that will just be some heavy rain and gusty winds. The forecast from NWS Norton mentions gusts to 39 while the threshold for a severe thunderstorm is 58 mph or higher. Could certainly see some flooding and possibly some smaller/older trees down.

Regardless of what the forecasted peak gusts are, watch out. I've seen old/unhealthy trees topple over or split in half in gusts less than 50 mph. Every time they took out fences and even a powerline in one case.
