Flooding Rains Continue

A weak upper level low continues to meander across Texas. Its weak, but its enough of a trigger with all of the rich gulf moisture we have over the state.

The low will continue to slowly weaken, but since it is cut-off from the main upper flow across the country, the low really won’t go anywhere fast.

Here is a look at what will likely go in the books as the wettest June ever in the metroplex:

Rainfall so far this year (as of Wed, June 27, 10am) 30.74″
Average for the year up to June 26th: 18.59″

Rainfall so far this month, as of 10am on the 27th: 9.76″
Average for entire month of June: 3.23″

Wettest Junes on record:
1928 11.58″
2004 10.49″
2007 9.76″ so far….

Wettest records Jan-June:
1957 36.46″
1990 31.10″
2007 30.74 (as of 9am)
1949 30.52″

With the big low slowly weakening, rain chances will gradually diminish, but rain can’t be ruled out all the way through the weekend.
