Oncor Electric crews are working to restore service to more than 13,000 after outages affected customers from Sherman to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and into Central Texas.

American Airlines on Thursday canceled 35 flights in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Spokeswoman Dori Alvarez said the Fort Worth-based carrier on Wednesday canceled 140 DFW flights.  In all, more than 3,000 travelers were stranded due to the weather.

Strong winds Wednesday ripped the roof off of the Wayside Plaza Apartments in Fort Worth Wednesday night.  Elsewhere, strong winds are being blamed for toppling trees, including a 100-year-old Cottonwood in Uptown Dallas.   Despite the damage, no injuries have been reported.

NBC 5 meteorologist Samantha Davies said showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout North Texas throughout the day and that a storm or two are possible on Friday. The high on Thursday is 83 with a low of 68 tonight.

The weekend, however, should be relatively clear and dry.  Next week, temperatures are expected to return to the mid-90s.
