Stormy skies moved across North Texas late Wednesday, and they are poised to bring a lot of rain to our drought-parched region -- between 1 and 3 inches, depending on where you live.

And there is likely to be some flooding.

A Flash Flood Watch was issued for Dallas and Tarrant counties and counties to the north starting Thursday morning and continuing through Friday afternoon.

I'm not concerned about flooding overnight, and I'm not concerned about flooding during the Thursday morning rush hour, but once we get past 9 a.m., the threat of flooding will really start to increase.

As of 10 p.m. Wednesday, a thunderstorm moved through Dallas dumping 1/4 to 1/3 inch of rain. More rain developed to the southwest of Fort Worth, with that storm system moving in the direction of Waco.

Thursday morning's commute will be a wet one, and by noon, widespread showers and thunderstorms will envelop North Texas.

There will be a bit of a break during the afternoon, but the rain will become widespread again on Thursday night into Friday morning.
