The Big Rain expected for close to a week is approaching Dallas-Fort Worth from the north, and some towns along Interstate 35 are already seeing substantial flooding, reports the Dallas Morning News.

According to the National Weather Service, one rain gauge in Valley View, in Cooke County just north of Denton, has already picked up close to 10 inches of rain due to the slow-moving upper-level disturbance. A heavy storm has also been lingering over Sanger in Denton County, and KXAS-Channel 5 is reporting that I-35 is now closed in both directions up there because of what the National Weather Service is calling “serious flooding.”

The rest of North Texas, including Tarrant and Dallas Counties, remains under a flash flood watch as the disturbance finally begins moving south and east.
