Heavy Rainfall Across Portions Of Gulf Coast States This Week

Abundant moisture will interact with a stalled front in the Gulf of Mexico this week to generate locally heavy rainfall across the Gulf Coast region. This activity will be bolstered mid-late week by remnants of Willa, currently in the eastern Pacific. This surge of moisture could bring widespread flood concerns to the region given the prolonged period of wet weather. Read More >

Clouds will increase through the day on Monday. While the vast majority of us will remain precipitation-free, there will be a low chance for a few showers across parts of Central Texas during the afternoon and evening hours. High temperatures will be in the 60s area-wide.
It'll be another cool night across North and Central Texas (although not quite as cool as last night). Upper-level cloud cover will be on the increase tonight and into Monday.
Rain chances will increase from southwest to northeast Tuesday as an upper level storms system approaches the area. Rainfall amounts will be light. High temperatures Tuesday will be in the 60s.
Wednesday will be cloudy, wet and cool due to the passage of an upper level storm system. Numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected. Localized heavy rainfall could also lead to some flooding issues. High temperatures Wednesday will range from the middle 50s to the lower 60s.
While we enjoy the sun and dry weather... Let's take a look at the rainfall totals from our Multi-Day rain event (October 12th -19th), and for the last 2 weeks. Many locations received over 10 inches of rain during the last two weeks and most of it fell during the October 12-19th period.
