Tornado watch canceled for all of N. TX

The threat of severe storms hung over North Texas for a second day in a row on Friday night.

Originally, a tornado watch had been issued for several counties until 3 a.m. Saturday, including Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Hunt, Montague and Tarrant County.

The watch was later canceled for the Metroplex, and just after 1 a.m. Saturday, it was canceled for all of North Texas. Some gusty winds and hail in storms could still be possible, though.

Much of North Texas had a wild night of weather Thursday with tornadoes, hail, lightning and flooding.

A lightning strike likely sparked a gas well fire near Denton. The well site is off of Interstate 35 and West Windsor Drive and is near a housing development, but no evacuations were ordered.

Flash flooding was reported in cities like Denison. Interstate 35 in Cooke County was shut down in both directions due to flash flooding.
