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 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.
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.
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.
