Additional Heavy Rains for Texas expanding into the Gulf Coast

Tropical Moisture streaming ahead of major hurricane Willa off the western Mexico coastline is interacting with a frontal boundary in the Gulf Coast. Locally heavy rain is possible in Texas, which could exacerbate ongoing flooding. Rain will shift farther east into the western and central Gulf Coast. Read More >

Some sprinkles of light rain this morning will slowly give way to peaks of sunshine. The bulk of the rainfall will be across Central Texas. High temperatures will remain below normal but will reach 70 degrees in some areas along and north of the I-20 corridor.
Widespread rainfall is expected on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Rain will be light to moderate at times with rain totals ranging between 1/2" along the Red River Valley to near 2" across the Brazos Valley. An isolated 3" amount cannot be ruled out. Flooding of creeks, small streams and rivers will be possible. Turn around, don't drown if you come across flooded roadways.
A few sprinkles or very light rain showers will be possibly early Thursday morning. Otherwise, skies will gradually clear from west to east through the day. Winds will be light and out of the north at 5 to 10 MPH.
After several rainy weekends, a rain-free weekend is forecast across North and Central Texas! Highs will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s with a few clouds across the region.
