Flood watches issued with rainy weekend ahead for much of Texas

DALLAS (AP) — Large sections of Texas are under flood watches with forecasts calling for rain through the weekend.

Parts of state are already getting soaked as rain and cooler temperatures make their way into the state after a long hot, dry stretch.

Utilities report more than 26,000 customers in North Texas have lost electricity amid the storms. Most of the power outages are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The National Weather Service says much of West Texas and part of South Texas are under flood watches, while Central Texas could get up to 3 inches of rain.
