Mayfest gets ready to open after rain delay forecast is bright
For the second straight day, rainfall delayed the opening of Mayfest in Trinity Park.
Mayfest officials tweeted that the grounds need "to drain/dry out" before the festival opens at 5 p.m..
On Thursday, another round of storms delayed the first day of Mayfest as vendors needed more time to set up.
The storms brought much-needed rainfall to North Texas. At Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, 1.36 inches had fallen since Thursday.
The wet Friday morning weather caused a few road closures in Johnson County and some flooding in the Austin area but forecasters say there should be no issues this weekend for Mayfest, Cinco de Mayo or any other outdoor events.
"It may be little foggy Saturday morning but otherwise it should be fine," said National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Gudemestad.
