More rain is in the forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday and the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for much of North Texas.

Thunderstorms are likely across much of North Texas on Tuesday night, and the NWS gives Denton County a 100% chance, with some of them being severe. The primary threats are large hail, gusty winds and heavy rainfall, which could lead to flash flooding. Recent rain has saturated soil in the area, and “with multiple rounds of showers and storms still expected, the threat of flash flooding will exist as locally heavy rain may still occur,” according to the weather service.

Another round of strong storms are expected to reach Denton County Wednesday night. Damaging winds are the primary threat, but locally heavy rain could also produce isolated instances of flash flooding. Showers are likely to continue through Thursday afternoon.
