The heavy rain and thunderstorms that covered North Texas Tuesday night have moved east. All that remains Wednesday morning is a few light showers. Roads will be wet for the morning commute, but the areas of high water have receded.
Luckily no severe weather accompanied the thunderstorms that moved across North Texas. A thunderstorm is considered severe when it produces hail up to an inch in diameter and winds in excess of 60 mph.
Rainfall totals were high. Parts of East Dallas, near White Rock Lake, received more than five inches. Several North Texas cities picked up three inches of rain.
This rain event will help the ongoing drought. An update on our drought status will be released Thursday.
The remainder of the week will be dry. Temperatures will be pleasant on Thursday before a return to 90-degree heat this weekend.
