Line of Storms Moves Through Tarrant, Denton, Collin Counties

Heavy rain on top of already saturated soil will likely lead to flash flooding in many areas

A Tornado Watch has been issued for North Texas Thursday until 10 p.m.

According to NBC 5 Senior Meteorologist David Finfrock, Thursday's watch is primarily for the counties northeast of DFW. Dallas, Tarrant and Denton Counties are not included.

Thunderstorms will sweep eastward across the region during the late afternoon and evening hours. The best chance for storms in DFW will be around 6 or 7 p.m. But storms will continue east of Dallas late into the evening.

Rain chances will taper off Friday morning and it will turn much cooler during the afternoon and into the weekend.

Overnight Wednesday, strong circulation in one storm prompted a Tornado Warning for Jack and Young counties shortly after 3 a.m. Quarter-sized hail was also reported with the storm.

Be sure to remain weather aware and avoid driving through flooded roadways.

A break in the rain is expected Friday evening into Saturday. Expect unseasonably cool temperatures Friday through Sunday with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 50s.
