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 >

There will be low rain chances tonight, mostly across Central Texas. Low temperatures will be in the upper 40s to low 50s with light south to southeast winds. Rain totals should remain below 1/2".
There will be a continued chance of showers south of I-20 on Tuesday, with the best chance during the morning hours. For North Texas, partly to mostly sunny skies are expected. Highs will be in the 60s to near 70 degrees. Winds will be light (around 5 mph) from the east and northeast.
It will be cool and rainy on Wednesday as an upper level disturbance moves across the region. Highs will be in the upper 50s to 60 degrees. An isolated thunderstorm or two are possible, but severe weather is not expected. Rainfall amounts are expected to be highest south of the I-20 corridor, where 1 to 2 inches are possible. This additional rain may aggravate or prolong river flooding. Stay tuned for updates!
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.
