From the National Weather Service:

Here's the latest information on Tropical Storm Bill and the forecast track of the center of the low pressure system. It is important to keep in mind that impacts from this system will be worst along and east of the track of the center.

Tropical Storm Bill is expected to track through North Texas over the next 24 to 36 hours. This system will likely bring heavy rainfall to the region along and east of the track of the center. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches can be expected over the next 72 hours. Flash flooding will be possible through Wednesday across the region.

Primary concerns here are flooding. All local lakes are in surcharge (over the flood pool) already, and there is no capacity for flood control with heavy storms. Once this rolls in, it will dump a lot of rain (over 4 inches for us) over an extended period.

The Lewisville Office of Emergency Management recommends that citizens review the flood preparedness information at Ready.gov.
