Winter Ends With Two Straight Days Of Rain

March 16, 2008 at 9:53 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

A little over a week ago, North Texas was in the middle of the second snow storm in less than five days. This past week, we flirted with summer as parts of the area hit 90 degrees for the first time this year. Spring officially begins on Thursday and winter will end with forty-eight hours of rain and storms.

 The rain will begin overnight tonight and showers & storms will continue throughout the day on Monday. A Flash Flood Watch goes into effect on Monday evening and will expire Wednesday morning. The watch covers the entire I-35 corridor and all counties to the east. It includes Tarrant, Dallas, Collin and Denton.

 The heaviest rain looks to be on Monday night and Tuesday once that Flash Flood Watch kicks in. An upper level low and a cold front will both be passing thru late Monday and Tuesday, and that looks to be the most unstable time. The biggest threat will be rain for sure, but there could be a few isolated strong to severe storms with hail and wind being the biggest problems.

 The rain should end Tuesday night and we set up for what should be a beautiful middle and end to the week as spring begins.

  1. Where can I regularly find the year-to-date total DFW rainfall compared to last year and average? This info is rarely mentioned on the weather segment.
