WEST TEXAS - Rain fell across the central Permian Basin Thursday causing some minor street flooding and flood warnings

Rain moved into the Midland-Odessa area early Thursday and fell until about noon. Low spots in both Midland and Odessa were left flooded by the storms. Many of the usual trouble spots in both cities had to be blocked to traffic for much of the day to allow the waters time to go down.

Midland County spent much of the morning under a Flash Flood Warning. That warning expired around 1:15 Thursday afternoon.

Howard and Glasscock Counties were under a Flash Flood Warning Thursday night until 8:15. NewsWest9 viewers in Big Spring reported getting over five inches or rain. FM 33 was closed in southern Howard County Thursday evening after water started running over the road.

The central Permian Basin is under a Flash Flood Watch until Friday morning. The watch area includes Midland, Odessa, Big Spring, Andrews, Stanton and Crane.

StormTracker9 meteorologist Matt Engelbrecht will have your latest forecast Friday morning on NewsWest9 Sunrise starting at 5:30 a.m.
