Episode Narrative Storms developed along a dry line which moved into north Texas during the afternoon hours on the 18th. Rich Gulf moisture and ample instability helped the storms develop further as they encountered a warm front to the east. At least one tornado touched down and more than a thousand flights were cancelled at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport as numerous storms moved through the metroplex.
Event Narrative Flash flooding was reported at Spring Creek and Highway 75. The creek was over both north and southbound service roads.
