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).

Flash Flood Threat Starts Thursday Morning

There are a few, widely scattered storms in the forecast for the rest of the afternoon and evening across North Texas, but the widespread rain and flooding threat will hold off until Thursday morning. A potent disturbance in the upper levels is currently over Colorado and should be arriving here by early Thursday.

CBS 11–07/16/2014

Widespread Rain Still on Track Late Week

After Monday’s active weather, with numerous strong storms…today is quite nice! Lower humidity and not as hot is always a treat for July. With the drier air in place tonight and a light wind, temperatures are forecast to fall into the 60s across parts of the area. Should feel great first thing Wednesday morning!

Metro Overnight Lows County zoom

We are still watching a pretty potent disturbance up in Montana, which will drop our way by Thursday to start up widespread rain and thunderstorms in North Texas.


The rain chances will start picking up late Wednesday into Thursday. Most of the day Wednesday will feature only low rain chances.

NTX Rain Chances11

By Wednesday night, rain chances tick up.

Thursday will be the wettest day of the week, with 70-80% rain coverage over the northern half of North Texas.

By Friday, the upper level energy and associated cold front will sweep through, shutting off the rain from west to east during the day.

NTX Rain Chances

There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe thunderstorms for North Texas on Thursday. There will be plenty of lift, with a stalled on cold front on top of us and that upper disturbance. We’re not thinking that there will be widespread severe weather, but a few storms could produce larger hail, damaging wind and lightning. The biggest threat in my opinion is flash flooding during the day Thursday into Thursday night.

Severe Risk Day 3

Rainfall amounts Wednesday night thru Friday night are quite impressive. Many areas are forecast to pick up over 1″ of rain, with many areas closer to the Red River seeing over 2 to 3″! This is why flooding remains a concern, but we need every drop of rain we can get!

NTX Futurecast Precip Accum

All the rain on Thursday and Friday will hold high temperatures into the 80s! After Friday, we’ll dry up and heat back up for the weekend. There is a slight chance of storms again next week.

80s & Rain in July? It’s In the Forecast

We are currently experiencing pretty typical July weather: highs in the 90s. In fact you look back since 2000, over half of July days are in the 90s.

This Week’s Drought Update Largely Unchanged

It’s still bad out there in terms of the drought. Just about all of North Texas is under some sort of drought condition.

CBS 11–07/10/2014

Chance of Storms Returns Late Tonight

While it’s been another rather hot afternoon, we are keeping tabs on a cold front up in Oklahoma. There were already a few storms near Wichita Falls as of mid-afternoon.

Healthy Rainfall for Parts of North Texas Wednesday

Once again today there were pockets of very heavy rainfall. We had flooding issues in Arlington, North Saginaw, & Trophy Club in particular. DFW finally saw a good rain, with over an inch. Ft Worth Alliance Airport picked up over 1 1/2″ of rainfall.

Scattered Downpours Likely Again This Afternoon

Tuesday’s scattered thunderstorms produced some very heavy rainfall in localized pockets. We could see that play out again this afternoon. We still have a very soupy atmosphere, very tropical with dewpoints in the 70s! That muggy air is the fuel we need to drive t’storms, but we also need a colder pocket of air aloft to aid in rising air, which is the prerequisite for storms. We have that too, an upper disturbance is moving east/southeast out of the Texas Panhandle.

CBS 11–06/25/2014

Scattered Thunderstorms the Next Couple of Days

We are seeing scattered thunderstorms this afternoon that are forming in the heat of the afternoon. We have some very humid air in place that is fueling these storms.
