Thursday storms bring heavy rain, cooler weather to North Texas

It felt a lot nicer outside Thursday after a heavy round of storms moved through North Texas.

Last month was one of the driest Mays on record, but the first day of June brought scattered thunderstorms and a hail threat. Some areas got less than an inch of rain and others got more than 2 inches, meteorologist Jesse Moore with the National Weather Service.

At DFW International Airport, only .15 inches was recorded. Dallas Love Field measured .45 inches. But a city of Dallas rain gauge at Skillman Street and Southwestern Boulevard saw 2.21 inches, he said.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for parts of Dallas County that was allowed to expire. Some flights were delayed a few roads experienced flooding.

The rain did do a nice job of cooling things down. DFW reached a high of 87 at 1:39 p.m., but three hours later the temperature was down to 74 degrees.

"It’s June 1 at 5 in the afternoon and the temperature is 77 degrees," Moore said. "Who’s going to complain about that?"
