Widespread rain fell over North Texas the past few days.

Pockets of heavier rain lead to totals of 2 to 3+ inches in a few locations.

Most places picked up over 1in since Sunday with higher amounts for some.

May is normally the rainiest month of the year, so repeated rounds of soaking rain should not come as a surprise.

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is actually still behind the bar when it comes to rainfall for the entire year. It got a little dry at the beginning of spring, which caused drier than normal conditions. With the recent rain, Dallas-Fort Worth is playing catch up, but not there quite yet.

D-FW is around normal for rainfall this month, but still below normal for the year.

It is not impossible for the clouds to break apart some late Wednesday, and for some peeks of sunshine to return. However, don't count on much.

If you want more sunshine, though, you won't have to wait long...

Rest of the week and this weekend

Better weather returns by Thursday!

Sunshine will be back and temps start to warm up as well.

Friday looks to be a beautiful day with warm and dry weather to start the weekend as well.

High temps will warm back to normal or close to normal by this weekend.

Enjoy any sunshine and dry weather while it lasts, because shower and storm chances look like they will return Sunday, lasting through the first half of next week.
