Hurricane Maria Forecast To Bring Impacts To East Coast

Hurricane Maria will approach the Mid-Atlantic coast early this week then finally shove eastward into the open Atlantic. Maria will likely not make landfall but will come close to portions of North Carolina midweek and could bring tropical storm force winds, locally heavy rain, storm surge, and very rough surf. Maria will create hazardous surf and rip currents for much of the East Coast this week. Read More >

It will be mostly cloudy for the rest of tonight west of a Gainesville to Lampasas line with isolated showers possible. Expect partly cloudy skies elsewhere. Lows will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s with southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.
Rain chances will begin across the western counties of North and Central Texas on Monday as an upper level trough approaches from the west. Storms should be fairly isolated, and no severe weather is expected at this time. Otherwise, highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with southeast winds around 10 MPH can be expected.
Rain chances will continue to increase across the western counties on Tuesday as an upper trough edges slowly eastward, with a slight chance of rain extending east of Interstate 35/35E. Severe weather is not expected, but some locally heavy rain may be possible across the west. Otherwise, high temperatures will range from the lower 80s across the west to near 90 in the central and east.
We will have mostly cloudy skies with chances of showers and thunderstorms across North and Central Texas Wednesday through Friday. A cold front Tuesday will bring cooler weather Wednesday through Friday. Rain chances will end overnight Friday night as drier air works its way in behind another cold front. Cooler than normal weather will continue through the weekend.
Through today, Waco has gone 28 days with no rainfall (not even a trace!). Waco is still 7 days away from reaching the top 10 list of rain-free periods and with rain expected later this week, we probably won't reach the top 10. Here's a list of top 10 rain-free periods for Waco.
DFW had a trace of rain on September 19th, ending the rain-free streak at 22 days. DFW has not had measurable rainfall since August 27th, which makes 28 days of no measurable rainfall. There will be chances of rain Tuesday through Friday which would break the streak of no-measurable rainfall short of the 44 days that we'd have to have to reach the top 10 list.
