Additional Heavy Rains for Texas and the Great Basin

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. An upper trough in the Southwest and a cold front in the central U.S. may produce locally heavy rain and high elevation snow from the Great Basin to the Rockies. Read More >

Clouds will invade from the southwest today resulting in Partly Sunny skies. High temperatures will climb into the 60s with a few 70 degree temperatures across parts of western North Texas. There will be a chance for sprinkles or very light rain, mainly for locations near and south of I-20.
Rain chances increase Monday night and into the early morning hours on Tuesday. Rain amounts should be light with totals generally less than 1/2". Overnight low temperatures will fall into the 40s and 50s across the area.
There will be a continued chance of showers south of I-20 on Tuesday. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the 60s can be expected.
A chilly and rainy day is expected on Wednesday as an upper level disturbance moves overhead. Showers will be fairly widespread with temperatures remaining in the 50s. At this time, it looks like the best rain chances and the highest rainfall totals will occur south of the I-20 corridor. This rain will likely aggravate ongoing river flooding across the region, though significant new flooding appears unlikely at this time.
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.
