Good afternoon everyone,
A large, slow-moving, moisture-laden storm system will move eastward out of the Southern Rockies, joining forces with a strong cold front to produce chilly, wet conditions across North and Central Texas over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Winter precipitation is NOT expected for our portion of the state, but heavy rainfall WILL occur. This will produce at least some flash flooding and river flooding through the weekend. As a result, surface and aviation travel will likely be impacted to some degree. A short PDF has been attached to better show precipitation amounts, timing, and impacts.
Repeated rounds of rainfall will occur over North and Central Texas, beginning today. Today's rainfall will be sporadic and generally light, while late Thanksgiving Day through Sunday, producing some localized amounts of 6 to 8 inches. Our soils remain wet, and vegetation is dying off due to the recent freezes. As a result, it'll be easier for heavy rainfall to run off and cause problems. There will likely be at least some flash flooding in areas where storms train over the same areas. Renewed river rises and flood crests are also possible through the weekend, especially on the Trinity and Sulphur River basins.
