Rain will dampen Thanksgiving weekend

rain thanksgiving 2015You’re going to need an umbrella for sure this holiday weekend.

Multiple days of rainfall are expected throughout the weekend, forecasters say, that could result in localized flash flooding in Denton County.

A large upper level low pressure system will set up over the western U.S. through the end of the week which will help Gulf of Mexico moisture surge into the area. This will result in warming temperatures and increasing rain chances by Thanksgiving.

A strong cold front will move through the area early Friday with much colder temperatures. Areas of rain and a few thunderstorms will continue Thursday through early Sunday across the region. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches can be expected through Sunday. Temperatures this weekend will struggle to get out of the 40’s.

DFW Airport’s 2015 total of 50.75 inches is within 3 inches of the all-time record of 53.54 inches set in 1991.
