National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

A Flood Watch has been issued for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and points north and east, in effect from midnight tonight through Saturday morning. Additional rainfall totals of one to two inches can be expected through Friday, with locally higher amounts of two to four inches possible. Soils are saturated across North Texas from recent heavy rainfall, and any additional rainfall will result in rapid runoff, which will likely lead to flooding.
It will remain cloudy tonight with scattered to numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms. Locally heavy rain is possible that would result in flooding. Lows will be in the lower 30s northwest to the upper 40s southeast. Winds will be light and variable.
It will be cloudy and not as cool Friday with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Locally heavy rain may lead to some flooding. Highs will range from around 50 degrees northwest to the lower 70s southeast.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected Saturday as a cold front moves through the region. Some severe thunderstorms will be possible along and east of the I-35 corridor as a squall line moves east across North and Central Texas. Damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. In addition, heavy rain may lead to flash flooding.
