Tuesday morning brought welcome rains and cooler temperatures to North Texas. Rainfall totals as of 9 a.m. were over an inch in some North Texas communities.
This comes at a good time. After a stretch of hot and dry weather, parts of North Texas were starting to see moderate conditions return. Abnormally dry soils were also taking over much of DFW.
As of Aug. 26 DFW had received 0.95" of rain. Normal rainfall is 1.50" leaving a deficit for the month so far of -0.55". August is typically one of our drier months, but at this time last year DFW has received 2.99".
Rain chances stay in the forecast through Thursday.
