National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

The freezing line is near a Gainesville to Decatur to Eastland line as of 1 am. Light to moderate freezing rain is occurring north of this blue line. The freezing line will progress a little farther south tonight, but not by much. Elsewhere, locally heavy rainfall may result in flooding tonight.
One to four inches of rain have fallen across much of Dallas County since Tuesday morning. This has led to flooding in low-lying areas, and some areas near creeks and streams. Moderate flooding is occurring along White Rock Creek near Greenville Avenue in northeast Dallas. Minor flooding is occurring along portions of the Trinity River, the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, and Rowlett Creek. Flooding at night is particularly dangerous. Do not drive where water covers the roadway, as it will be difficult if not impossible to determine the depth of the water!
Widespread showers and cold rain will occur across North and Central Texas tonight. Cloud to ground lightning and heavy rainfall that could lead to flooding will be a threat with any of the storms.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of North Texas starting tonight 6 PM through 6 PM Wednesday. Rain transitioning to some freezing rain is expected to occur later tonight. Temperatures will stay slightly below freezing for much of the day Wednesday. Light accumulations possible, leading to hazardous travels.
Expect a cold and wet Wednesday across North and Central TX. Some freezing rain and ice possible to the northwest where temperatures will stay at or slightly below freezing for most of the day. Some light ice accumulation expected. Most of us will see the cold rain and some flooding is possible.
The Flood Watch has been expanded west to include the cities of Gainesville, Stephenville, Comanche and Gatesville. The Watch is in effect from now through Wednesday night. Periods of moderate to heavy rain may cause flooding of rivers, creeks, low lying areas and flood prone areas in and near the Watch.
