Hail the size of ping-pong balls fell in Saginaw and smaller hail was reported across northern Tarrant County Friday evening as winds up to 65 miles per hour accompanied rain across the area.
According to the National Weather Service, rainfall totaled .69 inches for the day by late evening at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, and continued to fall.
The rain did not delay the start of the Rangers-Angels game in Arlington, but the game was postponed in the first inning due to rain with the Rangers ahead, 1-0. The storm passed and the game resumed.
NWS meteorologist Steve Fano said the rain was the result of "a large low-pressure system" that swept though the area.
"Energy from the system combined with gulf moisture produced the showers and thunderstorms," the meteorologist said.
Saturday’s forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of rain in the morning and 30 percent chance in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid-70s and lows in the low 60s.
Sunday calls for a high in the upper 70s and a low in the lower 60s. No rain is expected.
