Rain chances are on the rise by the end of the week for much of Texas. Here is the latest from the Fort Worth National Weather Service Office.
A strong upper level trough is expected to move east across the Plains Thursday through Friday. This will send a cold front south through the Southern Plains, most likely through North Texas on Friday. Out ahead of the front, low-level moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will combine with mid and upper level moisture from the remnants of Ingrid & Manuel to send a deep tropical air mass over North Texas. On Friday, the front will interact with this tropical moisture, likely send widespread showers and storms across North Texas. No severe weather is expected at this time, however locally heavy rainfall is likely. Widespread rainfall totals of 1 inch are possible, which would put a small dent in the widespread drought conditions active across the region.
