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.
The atmosphere will be ripe for more rain and storms today. While severe weather is not anticipated, heavy downpours and lightning will be likely. The highest chance will be late in the day and this evening. #NBCDFWWeather https://t.co/pQGQV7lqGS pic.twitter.com/TIGNcVXnUo— Grant Johnston (@GrantJNBC5) May 3, 2019
