The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch in effect from late Thursday night through late 6 a.m. Sunday morning. The watch area include Hopkins and surrounding counties in the North Central and Northeast Texas area. Rainfall amounts across the region could amount to 3 to 7 inches with locally higher totals possible through Saturday night.
A strong storm system and a persistent influx of moisture will lead to multiple rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall late Thursday night through Saturday night. A strong cold front will push through the region Friday morning and lead to gusty North winds and afternoon high temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s with wind chills in the 20’s and 30’s.
A flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy rain which may lead to flash flooding. You should monitor the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service and turn to KSST 1230 AM, ksstradio.com, and, if traveling and need local weather check in on the app.
