No one is complaining about locally heavy rain Erath County and much of North Texas is receiving.

The storm that rolled through the area Thursday night is a soaker - dumping nearly five inches of rain in Stephenville, and prompting county officials to lift the burn ban.

"Rainfall as of  8 a.m. today (Friday) was 4.76 inches," according to local weather watcher Dr. Stuart Chilton. "This is the largest amount over a 24-hour period in Stephenville since 5.34 inches fell on January 24, 2012 - 21 months ago."

The rain is expected to last through Friday evening, and give way to sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s on Saturday.

Residents are also reporting locally heavy rain on the Empire-Tribune's Facebook page.

Red Williams-Claunch said Iredell has received 2.5 inches and Belinda Echeverria reported the same amount in the Harbin community.

"Our rain gauge stops at 5" and it was overflowing on Pilot Knob Road," said Sarah Douglass.

North Texas isn't the only area receiving much-needed rain.

Brooke Gorman said Midland has received an inch as of Friday morning.

"And Midland never gets rain!" she said. "It's been nice!"
