Flash Flood Warning for Denton County until 2:30 AM

A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for northern Denton County in North Texas until 2:30 AM. Doppler radar estimates over two inches of rain has fallen over the past hour across northern parts of the county including the Sanger area southeast to Aubrey and New Hope. Heavy thunderstorms continue in the area and additional rainfall is expected. We have not received any flooding reports in the county yet but I do expect issues in the usual low-lying problem spots to develop through 1:30 AM.
