Storms Expected into Early Saturday Morning

    A series of storms are expected to move through North Texas into Saturday morning, bringing strong wind, frequent lightning and periods of torrential rainfall.

    A severe thunderstorm watch includes most of North Texas, including the metroplex, until 4 a.m.

    In addition to heavy rain, wind gusts reaching 70 mph and hail up to two-inches in diameter could accompany these storms, according to NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock.

    The severe threat will diminish throughout the night, but rain could linger into the morning.

    Beware of standing water on roads, and do not attempt to drive through areas of flash flooding.

    Saturday will be much cooler with some light rain possible early in the day. Sunday will offer warmer weather and another chance of rain by evening.

    Several high school football games were moved to earlier kickoff times or temporarily delayed Friday evening to try and avoid the storms.
