A combination of showers, drizzle, and fog are expected tonight. Visibilities could be locally reduced to under a mile at times in heavier drizzle towards daybreak on Monday. Otherwise, low temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s.
Low rain chances will continue on Monday with drizzle and some fog during the morning hours. Clouds will begin to break up late Monday afternoon. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s.
After a brief break from rain chances on Tuesday, a mid-week cold front will bring a return to rain chances. Temperatures will warm up on Tuesday into the upper 80s to lower 90s across North and Central Texas. In addition to thunderstorm chances, the cold front will bring slightly milder temperatures for the second week, with afternoon highs in the low to mid 80s, and overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Here are some selected rainfall totals across North and Central Texas during the last 48-hours (Friday 7 am through Sunday 7 am). Many locations received between 2 and 5 inches, but some areas saw over 7 inches of rain. DFW has recorded its wettest September on record (11.49").
