More severe weather moving into North Texas Saturday

More storms and severe weather are moving in to the area on Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Lamont Bain said the showers and storms are primarily in Wise and Denton counties and can dump “quite a bit of rainfall” along with frequent lightning. Rain will be off and on throughout the morning and early afternoon in Tarrant and nearby counties, with more severe weather expected later Saturday afternoon and evening.

Bain said the second round of showers later Saturday may bring hail and flooding, and the weather service “can’t rule out a tornado,” though that seems unlikely in this area, as of Saturday morning.

There’s a good chance for storms Sunday in North Texas, too, Bain said.
