Road closures reported in messy morning commute

WFAA Live Weather

Several rounds of rain and thunderstorms scattered across North Texas make for a messy commute Wednesday morning. Several road closures were already reported early Wednesday morning due to accidents.

  • WB I-30 at I-45 closed due to an accident involving three 18-wheelers. Delay 30 minutes.
  • Northbound Loop 820 was closed at Rosedale due to an accident, but it has since been cleared and reopened.

WFAA Meteorologist Greg Fields says small hail and cloud-to-ground lightning is possible in some of these storms.

Everything should be out of DFW by midday and skies will become sunny and clear again with highs in the upper 80s.

Rain chances will continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend, with the biggest chance on Saturday.

Here's a breakdown of what will happen this week:

Wednesday:  The storms should weaken as the approach and move through the metro area between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m.  All rain/storms should end before Midday Wednesday and skies will be mostly sunny as highs climb into the upper 80s.

Thursday: The next round of showers and storms is expected to develop Thursday afternoon and continue into the evening. Severe storms are again possible with hail and damaging winds the main concerns. Storms will likely be scattered, so not everyone will see rain or severe weather.

Friday-Sunday: Rain and storms are more likely Friday night through early Sunday with locally heavy rain being a concern. Flash flooding will be possible through the first part of the weekend. Right now it looks rain chances will taper off during the day on Sunday.
