A strong cold front is bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms to the Dallas-Fort Worth area Thursday morning, making for a wet commute to work.

Stay aware of the potential for high water on some roads this morning. So, head out early and take it slow.

The front will move into Dallas-Fort Worth by sunrise. Temperatures will quickly fall from the 60s to the 40s and north winds will gust to near 30 mph, making it feel even colder.

The coverage of the rain will diminish during the afternoon as the front moves into Central Texas.

Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
 
At Home?
  • Head indoors immediately
  • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
  • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
Outdoors?
  • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
  • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it all you have.
Driving?
  • Stay inside your vehicle.
  • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
  • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
  • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.

 

Friday will be dry and chilly with morning clouds followed by sunshine.

The weekend will be dry and milder with highs in the 60s. Another strong cold front is on tap for Veterans Day.
