Plan For A Wet Memorial Day Across North Texas After A Stormy Sunday

Thunderstorms across North Texas are expected to build into a near-continuous line of storms, producing flooding, hail and damaging wind gusts, especially west of Interstate 35.

The most severe threat will be highest Sunday evening, with the line of storms diminishing overnight.

These storms are capable of dumping large amounts of rain in a short period of time. That means certain locations could flood fast, the National Weather Service says, especially in urban areas and other places with poor drainage. 

Memorial Day on Monday will be a wet one, too. Expect more heavy rain, with possible flooding in some areas. The clouds and rain will likely keep temperatures no higher than upper 70s/lower 80s. 

Heavy rain and storms are expected for Memorial Day 2020, which could cause flooding.
