The rain totals could lead to flooding in poor drainage areas and low-lying, urban locations. North Texans could see rises in creeks, streams and rivers that may spill out of their banks.
A stronger cold front will move through Friday morning with cool fall air.
On Thursday, the heaviest rain will slowly drift east with most of North Texas drying out by midday into the afternoon.
