North Texas has experienced five straight days of triple-digit heat, but a weak cold front brought that streak to an end.

Scattered showers and storms developed Wednesday morning along the Red River, with the heaviest rain from northern DFW Metro to the Red River. Avoid driving through flooded roadways.

Although widespread severe weather is not expected, a few storms could briefly be strong with locally heavy rainfall. Gusty winds in excess of 50 mph and cloud-to-ground lightning will be the main threats.

Before the Storm
Weather 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.
