Today’s Rainfall Amounts & Our Cool Forecast
What a morning of rain in parts of North Texas! Most all of the region saw at least some rain, but some saw quite a bit more than others. Officially just 0.70″ at DFW (as of 6:30p).
The “bulls eye” for the heaviest rain was in northern Denton and southern Cooke counties where some saw almost a foot of rain! Our Weather Watchers reported over 9″ near Sanger and Valley View!!!!
Here’s a look at our other CBS DFW Weather Watcher reports from the most to the least, in terms of rainfall.
We’re not completely done with the rain this evening and tonight. An upper level disturbance is still tracking our way. But the atmosphere was pretty worked over from all the rain today, so the flooding threat has been lowered quite a bit. The heaviest rainfall overnight should be south and east of the DFW area.
Aside from the rain, the cool air is the other big weather story! The high today at DFW was 79°, which was just after midnight. Most of the afternoon we spent in the 60s!!! Hard to believe for July. This was the coolest July day since last year: July 15, 2013. We will near a record low temperature overnight with lows in the mid to upper 60s!
Clouds will slowly clear on Friday, and with a north wind, we’ll only climb into the upper 70s and lower 80s for high temperatures!
We’re back to reality this weekend, with 90s for highs…staying hot for next week too.
