Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has gone 40 days without any measurable precipitation. The stretch runs from Aug. 31 through Oct. 9.
The longest DFW Airport has ever gone without seeing rain was in 2000, when no measurable rain was recorded between July 1 and Sept. 22. This is an 84-day dry spell!
