Lingering Morning Rain Before Drying

Live Video from

Rain chances will gradually diminish Tuesday, but not before a few lingering showers in the morning.

The rain may last into the afternoon in areas around the Red River. Otherwise, patchy sunshine is expected this afternoon and the next few days will be dry and hotter.

The humidity will stick around and that will make it feel quite hot later this week into the weekend.

Interactive Radar

The rain is welcome news considering it's been such a dry stretch since June.

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is currently in severe to extreme drought, though those conditions are expected to change once the weekly drought monitor updates recent rainfall.

In June and July, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has received 1.52 inches of rain. So far in August, DFW International Airport has received more rain (2.9 inches) than it normally receives in the entire month of August (1.91 inches).
