Weekend Rainfall Totals and a Pleasant Weather Week for North Texas
WEEKEND RAINFALL TOTALS…
Many areas saw a good rain Saturday night. There were some reports of gusty winds and even a few reports of down tree limbs, but overall no major damage reported. Here’s a look at the rainfall totals from this weekend.
DFW RAINFALL UPDATE…
The rainfall this past weekend was the first measurable rainfall reported at DFW this month. October is typically our second wettest month of the year. We are still running a small surplus for the year, but for the month we are down over a half inch. Here’s the rainfall update…
HIGH CLOUDS THANKS TO HURRICANE PAUL…
The high clouds that can be seen this afternoon across North Texas are thanks to upper level moisture coming our way thanks to Hurricane Paul which is in the Eastern Pacific. Those high clouds will stick around tonight and may be a little thicker tomorrow. Here’s a look at where Paul is in relation to Texas.
VERY SMALL RAIN CHANCE IN FORECAST…
The only chance of rain this week will be Wednesday evening as a cold front pushes thru. Ahead of that front during the day on Wednesday temperatures will climb into the upper 80s with strong SW winds blowing. The chance of rain will be low because there won’t be much moisture in place across North Texas and the main upper level energy will pass to our north. The only locations where there are small rain chances are generally NE of Dallas. Here’s a look at rain chances Wednesday evening.
