Flash flooding will likely impact portions of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex over the next 2 to 3 hours. The thunderstorms are nearly stationary and are being generated off previous thunderstorms outflow. The storms may cause localized, but significant street flooding or the evening rush-hour. Please do not drive into flood waters – whether they appear shallow or not. We don’t need any flash let fatalities this evening. Getting home five minutes sooner is not worth risking your life or the lives of first responders who would have to come rescue you. Rainfall intensity will hopefully start coming by 5 PM, but rain will likely continue for a while.
