As of 11 p.m. DFW had officially received 2.95 inches of rain on the day.
The latest news from around North Texas.
It was the first time DFW recorded more than an inch of rain since Oct. 22, and the most rain in a single day at DFW since June 24.
Elsewhere, Fort Worth received 1.87 inches of rain, and Dallas Love Field received 3.21 inches.
As the rain moves out, patchy dense fog may develop, lingering into the Wednesday morning drive.
