    NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist Rick Mitchell says rain chances Friday evening are not super high, but not zero either. Most outdoor events should be fine, but take an umbrella just in case, added Mitchell.

    A Flash Flood Watch has been extended until 7 a.m. Saturday for the following North Texas counties: Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Henderson, Hopkins, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufman, Lamar, Montague, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rains, Rockwall, Stephens, Tarrant, Van Zandt, Wise and Young.

    Weather Outlook

    Flash flooding may occur in urban and poor drainage areas. Heavy rainfall may also cause rapid flooding of creeks, streams and rivers, the National Weather Service warned. Remember, do not attempt to drive through flooded roadways and be sure to stay weather aware throughout the day.

    Drier weather returns over the weekend with increasing sunshine. The dry break will be short lived though as more wet weather returns next week.

    A total of 6.74 inches of rain fell at D/FW Airport in April — that's still well short of rainfall amounts currently in the record books. This year was the 12th wettest April on record.

    Since May 1, 1.15 inches of rain have fallen at D/FW -- the normal for the first three days of the month are .3 inches. So far this year, 12.78 inches of rain has been recorded at the airport.
