Tropical Weather Moving Closer to Texas and Florida

Harvey's remnant is forecast to regain tropical cyclone strength in the next day or two. Once Harvey starts impacting the Texas coast, up to 10 inches of rain will be possible over the next week. Another disturbance on the southern tip of Florida is not expected to strengthen, but it's slow movement could add up to 7 inches of rain over the next week. Heavy rain may produce flash flooding.

A weak cold front will move slowly across the Red River before sunrise Wednesday, then move south of I-20 into Central Texas by Wednesday afternoon and evening. Scattered showers and storms will occur both ahead and behind the cold front. No severe weather is expected, however, brief heavy downpours could cause brief flooding or at minimum, street flooding at times through the day Wednesday.
A front will stall to our south Wednesday night and Thursday morning. We will continue to have chances of showers and thunderstorms across all but the northeastern parts of North Texas. In addition to cloud to ground lighting, some storms may produce locally heavy rain.
Here's a look at the forecast for the weekend and early next week! Regardless of Harvey's track this weekend, the main focus for our area should be the potential for very heavy rain and possibly some flooding across Central Texas. Stay tuned as we refine the details in the forecast!
