Rainy weekend in store for much of Texas

Parts of Texas have been getting soaked as rain and cooler temperatures make their way into the state.

Oncor on Friday reported more than 15,000 North Texas customers without electricity Friday morning, compared to about twice that number overnight. Most outages are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Classes at Rockwall-Heath High School were canceled Friday due to no electricity.

The Arlington Fire Department used a ladder truck to rescue several motorists whose vehicles were caught in high water.

The National Weather Service says much of West Texas and part of South Texas are under flood watches Friday, while Central Texas expected up to 3 inches. Temperatures were to reach only the upper 70s and low 80s in West and North Texas, and upper 80s in South and Southeast Texas.

After a wet Friday night in the 50s in the Panhandle and 60s and low 70s elsewhere, rain should make South and Southeast Texas cloudy and wet through Saturday with temperatures in the 80s.
