Heavy Rain, Flooding Expected Over Weekend

October 12, 2018 - 11:39 pm

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The National Weather Service is prediciting a high likelihood of heavy rain and potential flooding over the weekend with another 4 inches possible in some areas by Sunday.

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect until Sunday at 6 A.M.

Forecasters say the location of the warm front Saturday afternoon will be the best indicator of whether the storms will be severe. Any Saturday morning rain in the metroplex would likely keep the warm front further south which  would decrease the strength of the storms expected later in the afternoon.

The additional rain is expected to increase the likelihood of flooding in already heavily saturated areas of North Texas.

Another wet weekend is already affecting weekend events. The Alliance Air Show has been cancelled on Saturday. However, it is expected to resume on Sunday, weather permitting.
