This Summer is North Texas' 7th Wettest on Record

Record unlikely to change again with no rain in the 10-day forecast

The 0.62 inches of rain recorded at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Monday morning makes this summer the seventh wettest on record.

The wettest summer ever recorded at the airport, where official rainfall records are kept, was in 2004 when 18.89 inches of rain fell between June 1 and Aug. 31 -- the dates for the summer season.

There are two weeks remaining during this year's summer season, but the weather pattern does appear to be changing.

A ridge of high pressure is building, allowing for hot and dry weather into next week with head indexes into the triple digits.

No real rain chances are forecast for the next 10 days. See the latest forecast from NBC 5 here.
