It’s going to rain, rain, and rain some more in North Texas.

North Texas which has had two to four inches of rain from overnight showers and thunderstorms will get more moisture on Wednesday.

A flash flood watch is in effect for most of North Texas until Wednesday evening as forecasters are calling for more chances of rain throughout the day on Wednesday. For now, forecasters believe the Dallas-Fort Worth area will receive another inch of rain.

“We think the axis of the heaviest rain has shifted southward,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bianca Villanueva.. “We’re not discounting that another heavier band of rain could move into the area later today and cause more flooding problems.”



Heavy rains overnight have caused several streets in North Texas to be closed.

In Colleyville, Sparger Park on Bedford Road was underwater from the storms that dumped lots of rain in the neighborhood.

Rainfall totals included 3.5 inches in Collin County, 2.66 in Denton and 2.6 in Tarrant County, according to the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth.



As of 11 a.m., Oncor reported more than 8,000 customers without power in Tarrant and Dallas counties. Storms packing winds of 60 to 70 mph hit North Texas overnight.

“It will dry out by Thursday,” said Villanueva.
