NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Weather-wise it was a record setting day in North Texas.

Widespread rain, totaling between three and five inches, fell in North Texas with isolated higher amounts in some locations, especially west of Fort Worth.

Flash flooding has come to an end as of midday, but longer-term river and creek flooding will remain throughout the day.

The Trinity River in Dallas is expected to crest 7-feet above flood stage late Wednesday, creating significant flooding nearby.

There will also be some residual street flooding as water slowly recedes now that the heavy rain has come to an end.
