DALLAS — With a flash flood watch issued for much of North Texas through 7 p.m. Thursday, flooding and high-water rescues were reported late Wednesday night and into the early-morning hours.

The Fort Worth Office of Emergency Management said the fire department was working “several high-water rescues” and warned residents to “stay off the roads if possible.”

Along with heavy rain, there were also reports of high winds and hail. Storm spotters reported penny-sized hail in Collin County. 

Meanwhile, the late-night, early-morning storms put on a light show for much of North Texas.


The challenging forecast continues Thursday and into the upcoming weekend. Additional showers and storms are expected each day with the potential of strong to severe storms. In addition, the flood threat will continue as rainfall totals keep going up.

It does look like North Texas will see a break in the rain Saturday and Sunday. But that break doesn’t last long. The unsettled weather pattern will dominate the next week of May.
