Flooding a concern after heavy rain over North Texas

Morning forecast update (7 a.m.)

Heavy rain seems to be done pouring on Dallas and other parts of North Texas this morning, as scattered showers and maybe some t-storms were predicted.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was under a ground stop for all flights coming in to the airport, which delayed several flights. The ground stop was lifted by 7:42 a.m. Some flights were also canceled or delayed out of Love Field this morning.

Thousands of Oncor customers were without power Monday as the hardest rain fell.

Flooding is now a concern as the rain moves out of our viewing area. There were several wet problem areas on North Texas roads early on Monday, causing traffic delays.

By Monday afternoon, rain and storms chances will be rather low.

Rain chances decrease and temps go up starting Tuesday. Far western areas of North Texas could see some stray showers or storms Tuesday and Wednesday, but most of North Texas stays dry.



Heat builds the rest of the week with highs back in the upper 90s and possibly triple digits by late week. Heat index values at or above 105° look to be a definite possibility especially the second half of the week.

While the recent rain is good, it means the ground is quite saturated and that moisture will help keep humidity high this week.

Couple that humidity with the heat, and it’ll likely feel oppressive for the second half of the week and into next weekend.

Summer isn’t done just yet!
