    Much of Texas finds itself in a rainy cycle, with heavy rain bringing flood warnings and flash-flood watches to North Texas.

    The National Weather Service issued a Flood Warning for Hunt and Rockwall Counties.

    A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Lamar, Hunt, Delta, Hopkins, Rockwall, Kaufman, Van Zandt, Rains, Henerson, Navarro, Freestone and Anderson Counties as well.

    Rain isn't the only concern. NBC 5 Meteorologist Remeisha Shade said some storms Wednesday afternoon and evening could contain hail and high wind. She said the highest threat for severe storms in the Metroplex will be between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.

    After a soggy Wednesday in North and Central Texas, East Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast was to have a second day of rain on Thursday.

    The National Weather Service says the sun was expected to shine over Texas through the weekend, but the state was expected to get off to a wet start to the week Monday.
