Latest forecast: First round of rain moves into North Texas, with more on the way

Rain chances will increase through the day and continue into Thursday.

DALLAS — A Flood Watch is in effect on this morning through Thursday evening for most of North Texas.  This is because we could see 2 to 4 inches of rain with isolated amounts up to 5 inches or more over the next few days.  

This could cause flooding in poor drainage areas and low-lying, urban locations.  We could see rises in creeks, streams, and rivers that may spill out of their banks.  

Showers and storms will really increase in coverage Wednesday evening into Wednesday night. Passing showers and storms are possible at any point during the day on Wednesday, but more will be seeing rain during the evening into night.

The Wednesday evening commute will likely be messy in spots if not a good majority of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Widespread rain will continue into the overnight hours Wednesday into Thursday.

On Thursday, heaviest rain will slowly drift east with most of North Texas drying out by midday into the afternoon.
