What a rain. It started Friday and is still going on in a few spots still. Long Lake in Anderson County recorded 6.68″ of rain over the last 72 hours; the biggest amount officially recorded in north Texas. Below I pulled the biggest recorded rainfall amount for each county. That 5.39″ in Henderson Co. was at Trinidad, the 4.41″ in Navarro county was at Corsicana.
Across Dallas County there were many reports of 3″ rainfall amounts. Fortunately the rain was spread over three days so flooding problems didn’t become widespread.
Skies are going to clear some as the night moves on. We’ll have some thick fog form over our western third from Somervell County up to Jack County. Lows will drop down into the 50′s:
It’ll be dry and mostly sunny by mid-day tomorrow. A brisk north wind will temper the warm-up, highs will get into the 80′s around the metro area, stay in the 70′s in the NE and East.
The low pressure system that drove this long-fuse rain event is going to bring heavy rain into the deep South over the next two days:
The position of this low teamed with high pressure over the northern plains means a brisk north wind again tomorrow.
There is no significant weather maker moving towards us until Friday and next weekend. It is looking dry across the work week and warm. A weak cold front moves through Tuesday, highs will stay in the 70′s with some clouds. Then its back to the 80′s:
