Flooding threat remains in parts of North Texas, with more rains on the way

NORTH TEXAS – The weather warning will be lifted on Sunday evening as severe storms move east.

Flooding continues in parts of Hill, Navarro, Henderson and Anderson counties, but the danger is also expanding to the south and east.

Severe storms brought high winds and some large hailstones on Sunday. Irving was hit again earlier, with radar readings showing winds up to 60 mph. Fortunately, we have not received any reports of the kind of significant damage that the Northern Police Station suffered on Saturday.

However, flooding was again a priority, and every metropolitan area was issued a flash flood warning at some point on Sunday. Most areas received 1 to 2 inches of rain, and further south, some locations likely received another 4 to 5 inches of rain within a few hours.

The atmosphere is clearly turbulent. As soon as it warms up again in North Texas on Monday, another round of isolated storms is possible in the afternoon and evening.

The Storm Prediction Center is classifying areas along and east of 35 as a Level 2 “low” risk on Monday, so we will be monitoring this area closely.

Things look like they'll calm down a bit by midweek, but it'll also get a lot hotter. Make sure you stay hydrated!
