DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Separate storm systems crossing the state have inundated parts of North Texas with driving rain, bringing flash flooding but also cooling temperatures.

CBS 11 Storm Team Meteorologist Larry Mowry said Wednesday the tropical-like downpours formed because there’s so much moisture in the air. The wet weather comes as a low-pressure system pushes west across Oklahoma into West and North Texas. More than five inches of rain fell on Plainview, north of Lubbock, over the last 24 hours. Tulia received nearly three inches.

Meanwhile, Larry said the rain chances will begin to diminish as we move into the overnight hours, giving way to a hot and muggy forecast on Thursday.
