Rainfall potential

This round does look to bring more much needed rain to the area. While it won’t get us out of the drought, we will continue to take whatever we can get. Within thunderstorms, rainfall rates nearing 2″ to 3″ per hour are expected. Upwards of an inch of rain should fall in parts of our area within thunderstorms but most locations may only receive a quarter-to-half inch.

Rainfall rates may be high, nearing 3" per hour in some storms, but the fast moving nature should keep most areas below an inch of rain. Some spots will miss out on rain entirely while most will see between a quarter and half inch.(KWTX)

Severe storm chances remain out of the forecast for about a week after the storms exit early Tuesday. Our next chance for rain won’t arrive until next week with a focus on Tuesday or Wednesday.
