Flooding issues linger after rain moves east

A line of storms drifted from the Red River into North Texas this morning, causing wet roads and a Flash Flood Warning for a few counties.

Overall the line has weakened, with the storms moving east and out of North Texas, Dallas County was among those under a Flash Flood Warning through 10:30 a.m. Mesquite was hit hard, with images coming to WFAA of people pushing cars out of flooded waters.

Our rain chances aren't over just yet. The boundary that has been laid out by this morning's rain will be lingering around North Texas this afternoon. As we increase the heat and instability, a few showers and storms will pop up along it.

The best chance for a few afternoon storms is from Dallas and Tarrant Counties, south. Severe storms are not expected and this will not be a widespread chance of storms like we saw this morning. 

Friday morning will not feature anything like we saw today. It looks to be smooth sailing. A few pop up storms are possible Friday afternoon. 

We're keeping a close eye on Friday night into Saturday morning. Another complex of storms that will develop in Oklahoma late Friday will make a run for North Texas Saturday morning. 

Current data suggests it won't make it here, but that's not something we should bite on given how rogue these storms were Monday and today.
