The potential for local heavy rain will exist across parts of North and Central Texas Saturday night through Monday according to the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth.

A cold front will move into North Texas overnight Friday night and stall across the region Saturday night. Meanwhile, the upper level low that has brought flooding rains to Florida during the last couple of days will move into Southeast Texas Saturday and then across East Texas Sunday through Monday. Tropical moisture from the upper level low combined with the surface front will be a set up that is conducive for locally heavy rain and potential flooding starting Saturday night.

FINALLY! Some relief. I've seen my family and friends in Louisiana talking about excessive moisture and wondering if they were referring to a heat rash.

The big change happens Saturday. By Monday, our forecast settles in for a few days of identical conditions:  Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s, lows in the upper 70s.
