Rainy weekend in store for much of the state

Parts of Texas have been getting soaked as rain and cooler temperatures make their way into the state.
Oncor on Friday reported more than 26,000 North Texas customers lost electricity amid the storms. Most of the power outages are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The National Weather Service says much of West Texas and part of South Texas are under flood watches Friday, while Central Texas expected up to 3 inches. Temperatures were to reach only the upper 70s and low 80s in West and North Texas, and upper 80s in South and Southeast Texas.
After a wet Friday night in the 50s in the Panhandle and 60s and low 70s elsewhere, rain should make South and Southeast Texas cloudy and wet through Saturday with temperatures in the 80s.
