We remain in an extremely moist and unsettled weather pattern - a pattern that continues to give us a potential for locally heavy rainfall, additional flooding, and severe weather. This pattern will continue intensify Saturday and Saturday night, and again Monday night. A short PDF has been attached to show confidence and impacts, and areas of concern. Also included in this slide set is a map of the lake drainage basins for the NWS Fort Worth area of responsibility.
This will be an “all hands on deck” weekend for weather. Severe weather and flash flooding will both be significant risks. Those charged with making decisions in the interest of public safety should monitor the current conditions and forecasts closely through Monday night. Any area which receives more than 1” of additional rainfall (in less than 3 hours) will see impacts.
As we've stressed, please don't focus on 5-7 day rainfall total graphics. The nature of the current thunderstorm activity is challenging our models and human expertise in terms of accurately pinpointing the location, timing and amounts of rainfall that we'll see, more than about 1-2 days in advance. Because of this, you must keep up with forecasts, advisories and warnings on a daily basis or more frequently.
