what we see
Storms and rain expected Friday afternoon through evening. Combined with very strong northerly winds and rain, afternoon temperatures will remain in the low 50s. However, the chance of rain is starting to decrease slightly for Friday night football!
Don’t worry about Thursday. High clouds are coming in from the southwest, so it will be a little windy in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70’s for him so the weather will change tomorrow so let’s get our errands done today and tonight.
We should be watching for strong storms moving from west to west counties later tonight and all night.
There is still a severe weather threat Friday afternoon, but the threat is confined to the southeastern counties.
A powerful storm column is expected to arrive Friday morning. When they arrive at his DFW metroplex, the North Texans can be hit by 50 mph gusts and blinding rain.
Check the weather updates on CBS 11 and/or CBS News Dallas-Fort Worth Friday morning before you leave. Our best advice for now is to get to work early.
Wet roads, strong winds and temperatures in the 50s make for a pretty rough day. With football on Friday night, the chance of rain is likely to be less, but the chance of dripping during the match is higher.
Localized flooding is possible on Friday. Rainfall can approach 3 inches in western counties and reach 1-2 inches in metroplexes.
Stay tuned for future updates.
