DFW weather: Flooding rains have ended, but lingering showers continue

Heavy, flooding rain has moved out of North Texas, but lingering areas of high water will remain.

Well, we asked for it.

After a brutal run of 100-degree days -- close to a record-setting pace, even! -- we got the break we asked for in the form of a rain system that copious amounts of precipitation overnight across the region. And it took another record-setting event to get us there. 

The heavy, flooding rain has moved on, but high water remains in places.

  • It's the second consecutive day in which we've seen record daily rainfall amounts at DFW Airport
  • These back-to-back days of rain have already made August 2022 the second-wettest August on record
  • The rain from this weekend has also already made August 2022 the wettest month DFW has seen on record since October 2018
  • The overnight rain represents the second-highest rain total we've seen on record in a 24-hour period, with the just over nine inches already reported second only to the all-time high of 9.57 inches seen in September 4 and 5 of 1932

So, does this mean the end of triple-digit heat, officially? Not necessarily, but no such high temps are showing up on our 10-day forecast.

Meanwhile, what does the rest of the day -- and week -- look like in terms of additional rain?

Let's get into it.

Tuesday - Wednesday

Scattered showers and storms are possible during the day, but these will be of the hit or miss variety. Any t-storms will also be moving, so hours of heavy rain is not likely.

So while some rain is possible, amounts causing additional flooding is very unlikely.
