The upper-level low that produced extensive flooding over Louisiana will finally start to pull away to the northeast. It stays well east of us so the best rain chances will continue to in our eastern counties:

Highs tomorrow will be even cooler thanks to the rain chances and clouds. It will have been 70 days since the last time DFW had a high in the 80’s:

The last persistent weather pattern over the United States was the recent high pressure ridge over the Central Plains. That lead to 12 days-in-a-row of 100 degree days across north Texas. The NEW persistent weather pattern is an upper-level high sitting over the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico. This will help funnel moisture from the Pacific and the Gulf into north Texas. Rain chances stay around all week, actually improving some end of the week:
