Tropical disturbance expected to bring heavy rain and potential flooding

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth advised it is closely monitoring a tropical disturbance in the west central Gulf of Mexico that is expected to move through central and northern Texas. This system, while relatively fast moving, has the potential to bring renewed flash flooding and river flooding to much of the area.

This system will be a prolific rain producer, and flash flooding will be a major threat Tuesday through Thursday morning.

Chance of rain, thunderstorms through Monday

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth said the active weather pattern will continue through the Memorial Day weekend with showers and storms possible everyday through late Monday.

Potential for flash flooding Saturday and Sunday

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Flash Flood Watch for parts of North Texas including Grand Prairie for Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.

Chance of severe weather increases on Friday

After a relatively quiet day today, the National Weather Service said the threat of severe weather will be on the increase Friday.

As an upper level trough and dryline/Pacific cold front approach Friday, the chances of showers and thunderstorms will increase across all of North and Central Texas. Some severe thunderstorms are expected Friday afternoon and evening.
