With plenty of outdoor activities and events this weekend, make sure to stay weather aware.

Showers and storms will increase in coverage on Sunday, especially from the Dallas-Fort Worth area to the east.

On and off rain is likely during the day. It may not rain constantly all day long, but most places will see rain.

Overall severe threat is very low, but can't rule out a stronger storm with some wind and hail.

Heavy rain from any thunderstorms could cause localized flooding in places.

Flash Flood Watch

This all kicks off a very unsettled and rainy pattern lasting most of next week with daily thunderstorm chances.

By the middle to end of next week, around 3 to 6 or more inches of rain could fall across North Texas.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Wednesday morning for all of North Texas.

That is why a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for all of North Texas. Flooding is possible with repeated rounds of heavy rain, especially for low-lying and typical flood-prone locations.


Severe Threat?

It is May, so the threat for severe storms will be there this weekend into next week.

However, it does not look high on any given day.

A few storms on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday could have strong wind gusts (up to 60mph) and hail (up to the size of quarters). Right now those threats are "Marginal", which a 1 on a scale of 5 when it comes to severe weather.
