Spotty showers greeted our start to the day.  Not much rain fell though.  Most areas that did see rain saw well less that .10″ of rain.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE

Several upper level disturbances to our west will impact North Texas this week.  The first one is that small area of low pressure south of California.  That will bring rain chances to us starting Wednesday into the day on Thursday.  A stronger upper level disturbance is near Alaska.  That one will bring us thunderstorm chances this weekend.

WEEKEND STORM CHANCES

Storms look likely this weekend with scattered storms on Saturday and higher coverage on Sunday.  Still a little early to determine the severe threat, but it appears that Sunday will feature stronger thunderstorms than Saturday and some of those may be severe.  But rainfall totals could exceed 1″ to 2″ in many areas as we will have slower moving thunderstorms and the chance for repeated rainfall over 36 hours.

NEEDED RAIN

We could use the rain.  Below is a list showing the rainfall from April 2012 thru January 2013.  You can see the deficit for each location and the percent of normal precipitation.  Everyone is behind.
