Rain showers likely will continue in the Fort Worth area through Saturday, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s, National Weather Service forecasters predicted.
Weather service meteorologist Matthew Bishop said today should be cool and breezy, with 20 mph northeast winds picking up around lunchtime and continuing into the afternoon. The area should get around an inch of rain.
Bishop said he expects minor flooding today, in areas already saturated by Wednesday’s rain.
On Friday, a low pressure system is expected to work its way up from Mexico, dropping another inch of rain on Fort Worth as it moves north. It could generate some thunderstorms with a chance of wind and small hail, Bishop said.

The weekend will be mostly dry, and dry weather is expected to continue until rain returns Wednesday, according to the weather service.
Bishop said the 4.82 inches of precipitation the area has received so far this year doesn’t come close to the 8.22 inches that had fallen by this time last year.
"We’re right on cue," he said. "We’re not too dry or too wet."
