And coming with the rain will be a cold front that will drop temperatures into the mid-30s on Friday night.
Here’s a look at what’s in store, by the numbers:

90 percent chance of rain Friday and Saturday
34 degrees, expected low Friday night/Saturday morning
40degrees, expected low during the start of the TCU-Baylor football game, set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at Amon Carter Stadium
“But it’s going to feel like 30 degrees and it’ll be wet,” Harris said.
50.35 inches of rain that has fallen at DFW Airport this year, the third wettest year on record in North Texas. The record of 53.54 inches (1991) could be broken by Sunday.
“It’s going to be nasty weather,” Harris said. “Cold and wet.”
