First, We get to the rainy weather expected. Overall as the cold front and upper level disturbance move into North Texas starting Friday, Moisture should begin to increase northward. Initially, on Friday we are expecting most shower and thunderstorm activity to remain west and north of DFW. However, as the day goes on expect coverage to steadily increase,and rain should overspread the area with off and on showers and storms by Saturday Morning. Overall, expect storms to decrease in coverage and intensity on Sunday. Overall, we should have about 1 to 2 inches of rain across the metro and points Northwest, the southern zones should receive about 1 inch of rain.
Tropical Forecast: Overall we are expecting the remnants of T.D 7 to head into the Bay of Campeche/ Southern Gulf of Mexico and possibly regenerate into a T.D/ T.S . Overall rain and moisture will be on the increase in South Texas, but it is unclear on how this will affect north Texas. Expect this to be in South Texas by Wednesday.img src="https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-
A tropical wave is currently moving into the Atlantic ocean, and will speed westward the GFS and ECMWF both develop this into a T.S/ Hurricane and curve it out to sea between Cape Verde and the Lesser Antilles.
