Flash Flood Warning In Effect Until Tuesday Morning. It feels like we just did this. Yesterday morning, I took my son to breakfast and almost got caught in high water on Garland Road. I went to McKinney in the afternoon and saw approximately a dozen wrecks on the way, so please be careful out there. People in Wylie can’t get a dang break. Also of note: the Trinity is expected to crest around 35.9 feet midday today.
Undercover Officer, Robber Exchange Gunfire. An officer in an unmarked car was approached by a robber early Saturday morning near a supermarket on Columbia Avenue. Guns were drawn. The officer wasn’t hurt. The suspect fled on foot.

They did good getting this far, but I don’t see any more wins coming.
FC Dallas Stays Unbeaten at Home.

Mauro Diaz missed his fourth straight with a hamstring injury, but other than that, it’s been a fantastic start for FCD, now sitting on top of the league table
