Widespread rain is on the way –– another good soaker looks likely to drench most of North Texas on Sunday night. However, that rain will be out of the region by Monday evening, leaving New Years Eve dry.

Saturday will be a sunny to mostly sunny day with high temperatures in the middle 40s. Clouds will steadily increase Sunday, with most locations staying dry. 

High temperatures will climb to near 50 degrees. By tomorrow night, rain will develop across most of the area. A widespread, cold rain will bring high temperatures in the mid 40s. This will occur throughout the day Monday before slowly ending late in the afternoon, moving west to east. 

Rainfall totals will average between ½” to 1” with some isolated higher amounts. 

As of right now, the rain should be over in North Texas by 7 p.m., meaning all outdoor activities, including the biggest of them all, Big D NYE, will be dry.
