From 7:00 am Wednesday through Thursday evening

Portions of North-Central and Northeast Texas, including the following areas, in North-Central Texas, Bell, Bosque, Collin, Comanche, Cooke, Coryell, Dallas, Denton, Eastland, Ellis, Erath, Falls, Fannin, Freestone, Grayson, Hamilton, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Lampasas, Limestone, McLennan, Mills, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, Tarrant, and Wise. Also, in Northeast Texas, Delta, Henderson, Hopkins, Lamar, Rains, and Van Zandt.

Rainfall totals of 2 to 5 inches, with isolated higher amounts possible.

Flooding may occur in urban and poor drainage areas. Heavy rainfall may also cause flooding of creeks, streams, and rivers, and creeks and streams may rise out of their banks, with possible flooding of low-water crossings.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

A Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flooding. Flooding is a hazardous situation. Therefore, you should monitor the latest forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flood Warnings be issued.

North and Central Texas

Today and Tonight.
There is a chance of thunderstorms today and tonight across much of the region. A severe storm or two is possible, but the main concern will be locally heavy rain and potential flooding, particularly later today and tonight.

Thursday through Tuesday.
Thunderstorm chances will continue Thursday. At the same time, the severe weather threat may be somewhat limited. However, thunderstorms may continue to produce heavy rainfall rates leading to flooding across North and Central Texas.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT

The NWS does not expect spotter activation at this time.

South-Central and Southwest Arkansas, North-Central and Northwest Louisiana, Southeast Oklahoma, East, and Northeast Texas

This Afternoon and Tonight

Rain chances will return across the region this afternoon as yesterday`s cool front returns northward as a warm front. This afternoon, do not rule out an isolated strong to severe storm across SE Oklahoma and portions of East Texas, north of the Interstate 30 corridor. Large hail and damaging winds are the primary threat.

Wednesday through Monday

Rain chances will remain in the forecast through the remainder of the workweek as pacific moisture, along with the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Pamela, move across the region in the southwest flow ahead of another cool front expected to move through the area on Friday. On Wednesday and Thursday, the best rain chances will remain northwest of a line from Lufkin to Texarkana, with heavy rainfall and some isolated flash flooding possible in these areas. However, the forecast does not expect additional hazards at this time.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT

The NWS will not need to activate emergency management personnel, amateur radio operators, or storm spotters through tonight.
