Wet Weekend in Progress

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for most of north Texas thru Sunday night:

Flood Watch

Yesterday the DFW airport logged over 2″ of rain. That’s the biggest one-day rain amount since July 4th. It’s now the wettest summer since 2007 with other 11″ of rain (counting the 1.06″ of rain that fell this morning at DFW).

The rain keeps the high today in the low 80’s. If the forecast holds over the next three days we’ll end up with the coolest run of August weather since 1992:

The heavy rain around this morning left to the east by 10am. Mostly clouds skies are expected the rest of the day along with some more rain. We have a weak cold front coming through this afternoon pushing the rain chances to the south. It will likely stall and bring a flood threat to our southern tier:

If the warm front gets a little further north than it could create more flooding woe for the Metroplex tomorrow. We’ll keep you updated.

Rain chances do start to taper off as we get into the work week. It is back to school for most of the kids. No hot weather expected but Monday and Tuesday it might we wise to have them carry along the rain gear:
