    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    NBC 5 Weather

    Showers and a few thunderstorms developed on Friday, but as expected most all of the rain remained northwest of DFW.

    The rain and cloud cover did have a cooling effect in those areas. But the cold front stalled out before reaching DFW, so we didn't receive either rain or cooler temperatures.

    In fact, Friday the 13 was indeed unlucky for us, as the afternoon high temperature again reached 95 degrees.

    This marks the first time in 122 years of weather records in North Texas that it has reached 95 degrees on each of the first 13 days of September.

    Before the Storm
    Weather Safety

    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's 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.
