Splashing again

Drivers in some areas of Greenville had to slow down when approaching high water Thursday afternoon, during periods of showers. A lot more rain and the potential for flooding is in the forecast today.

Hunt County is still expected to experience rounds of dangerous weather today, including the potential for heavy rains, strong winds, damaging hail and even a possible tornado.

But while it will be much colder Saturday, there is no chance of any snow in the forecast.

The National Weather Service placed Hunt County and much of the surrounding area of North Texas under a Flash Flood Watch, starting at noon today and continuing through early Saturday morning, with estimates of two to four inches of rain possible during the period, as the first severe thunderstorms of 2020 are predicted to pass through the region.

The forecast called for a 90 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, with a high near 71 and south southeast winds gusting as high as 25 mph.

The showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through midnight, then diminish as the winds shift out of the northwest, with gusts as high as 30 mph and a low around 35.

Another slight chance of showers is in the forecast for Saturday, with a high near 39 and more gusting winds.

As of Thursday evening, the National Weather Service had removed snow from the local forecast, but was still calling for chances of the white stuff in counties to the northwest and along the Red River.
