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.

Latest Video Forecast
Numerous showers and thunderstorms will move across North Texas by Thursday morning. Heavy rain is likely, along with the potential for occasional strong wind gusts. The rain will move east of the Dallas-Fort Worth before the morning drive ramps up. More storms are expected Thursday and Friday, and some areas could see heavy rain. Much of North Texas may see 2 to 3 inches of rain, and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect.
