Numerous showers and thunderstorms will linger tonight (Friday night) with a continued threat for heavy rainfall and flooding. Therefore, the Flood Watch will remain in effect tonight and continue through midday Saturday north of a line from Canton to Stephenville. Low temperatures tonight will range from the mid 30s in the northwest to some 60s in the southeast.
A Flood Watch is in effect through noon Saturday for much of North Texas. Additional rainfall accumulations of one to three inches can be expected through Saturday morning, with locally higher amounts possible. Soils are saturated across North Texas, and any additional rainfall will result in rapid runoff, likely leading to flooding.
Through noon on Friday, February 23, DFW's winter precipitation total ranks as the 9th wettest on record. The February total is the 6th wettest. DFW's 4-day (February 20-23) tally of 4.77" is the greatest 4-day total wholly within February. It's also the 3rd greatest 4-day total during winter (December-February), behind 5.80" (December 18-20, 1991) and 4.83" (January 31-February 3, 1975).
A line of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop Saturday morning out west and march eastward across the area into the afternoon and early-evening hours. The highest precipitation chances will be along and east of I-35. The GREATEST flooding threat will continue from I-35 and east, and near I-20 and points north to the Red River. High temperatures will be in the 60s west, and in the lower to mid 70s east.
