    Weakening thunderstorms moved into North Texas from Oklahoma Friday afternoon dropping temperatures and bringing as much as two inches of rain.

    Severe storms were not expected, but a few spots did see brief heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning.

    Preliminary rain totals Friday showed more than two inches in Gainesville, 1.58 inches in Bridgeport, 1.22 inches in Denton and 1.12 inches at DFW Airport.

    The weather is expected to be hot and humid going into the holiday weekend with a mix of sun and clouds and seasonably hot temperatures.

    Tornado and Hail 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.
