A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for North Texas until 7 a.m. Sunday. Motorists should stay alert as rain will continue to fall across already soaked roadways over the next 48 hours.

Numerous accidents were reported Saturday morning.

Dallas Fire-Rescue responded to at least 52 calls Friday to help drivers and residents dealing with flooding conditions.

Some vehicles were trapped in flood waters rising from 2-feet to fully-submerged, according to a city of Dallas spokesperson.



WFAA viewers shared photos and videos of hail hammering the metro area high water flowing across roadways.

Scattered storms and showers are expected throughout the weekend, making the start of June a wet one.

 

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FORECAST

After a couple rounds of rain and storms Friday and into Saturday morning, more rain and storms are possible the rest of the day.

Doesn’t look like it will rain all day long, but on and off showers and storms are possible. Because of Friday’s rain, the ground is very saturated in most locations, and any amount of heavy rain could cause flooding in spots. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of North Texas through Sunday morning. Severe threat is very low today with any storms. Much more concerned with a flooding threat under any stronger thunderstorms.

Passing rounds of rain and storms are possible overnight and during the day on Sunday as well. Sunday’s forecast is very similar to today.

By Monday, rain chances don’t completely go away, but will be less than this weekend.

Because of clouds and rain, high temps today will be below normal with temps in the low 80s in areas where it is not raining. If you find yourself in the rain, temps will be in the 70s.
