Widespread rainfall totals between 0.5-1.5″ of rain will be possible Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. A few places could see up to 2″ of rain. The latest run of FutureTrack shows locally higher amounts will be possible across portions of E TX. Since parts of the area have already seen a lot of rain this week, minor flooding of low lying or poor drainage areas will be possible.
