The possibility of severe weather remained for counties east of Dallas-Fort Worth on Saturday afternoon, but here locally, a welcome sight returned: the sun.
After days of dreary rain, thick fog and occasional storms, the sun popped out about 1 p.m. after a morning of heavy rains.
Meanwhile, a tornado watch remained in effect until 6 p.m. for counties further east, including Van Zandt, Rains, Lamar, Delta and Hopkins counties.
Several rounds of non-severe storms rolled through DFW Saturday morning, bringing heavy rain and possibly hail in some locations. But most of the area was in the clear by the early afternoon.
Here's a breakdown of where things stand for the rest of the weekend:
— Dry overnight and dry tomorrow. No problems for the Cowtown Marathon tomorrow morning.
Another story will continue to be the potential for heavy rain and flooding. With already saturated ground, any heavy rain could cause localized flooding. Highest threat for heavy rain and potential flooding will be from DFW to the east. Additional rainfall totals of 1"-3" are possible with isolated higher amounts.
Sunday should be the first completely rain-free day in quite some time, and should feature plenty of sun! Monday of next week is looking dry before rain chances return once again Tuesday into Wednesday.
