National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Update: A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect through Sunday morning for parts of North Texas. Additional rainfall amounts up to 2 inches will be possible in some areas. Don't cross flooded areas.
Rain (heavy at times) and thunderstorms will continue, especially along and east of I-35 today. Additional rainfall accumulations of one-half to one inch are likely, with locally higher amounts in excess of two inches possible.
Rainfall totals of 4-6 inches have been observed across much of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, with a few pockets of over 8 inches since midnight Friday morning. DFW has recorded 7.57 inches of rain in the 24-hour period ending 6:00 AM Saturday, which is the third highest 24-hour total on record! This also brings the monthly total at DFW to 10.91 inches, making September 2018 the wettest September on record.
Here are a few flash flood safety tips. Be cautious of areas that are prone to flooding and be especially cautious at night when it's harder to recognize flood dangers. Never drive through flooded roadways!
Astronomical Fall starts this Saturday September 22nd. On this day, both hemispheres receive the same amount of radiation. Day and night are nearly equal in length (approximately 12 hours). Days will slowly become shorter and nights will be longer.
