Flash Flood Watch Expires; North Texas Drying Out
If you see high water, always turn around — don't drown.
A slow moving weather system produced very heavy rain across much of North Texas Tuesday and Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch was allowed to expire Wednesday night.
Rainfall totals were impressive Tuesday with some areas of Collin County picking up more than 7 inches of rain. A few areas west of Dallas-Fort Worth picked up over 4 inches of rain overnight.

Dramatic video and pictures showed cars submerged in feet of water inside Parking Garage B at Dallas Love Field Wednesday morning, where more than 3 inches of rain fell overnight.
High water was reported on several area roads. NBC 5 cameras captured people stranded in floodwater along the Interstate 35E Frontage Road near Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas.
The rain will diminish in frequency by late Wednesday and should end completely on Thursday. In addition to the heavy rain, some thunderstorms may contain gusty winds.
Dry and sunny weather is expected Friday through the weekend.
