Rainfall Will Soak Most of North Texas – We Hope
At last, a slow-moving rain maker is setting up in West Texas and will move across North Texas over the next several days. This graphic from the National Weather Service shows good rainfall amounts forecast for the Wichita Falls area.
Our neighbors in Oklahoma will get their fair share of the shower and thunderstorm activity as well. Rain chances stand at about 20% beginning tonight and improve to 60% for Saturday and Sunday. Rain chances remain in the area through Tuesday night.
But this will hardly be a drought buster. Wichita Falls remains well over 30 inches below normal and the dry ground will soak up a considerable amount of water before run-off will occur in the watershed area. This map shows the defined watershed area for Lake Arrowhead, the area that needs the most significant rainfall.
