For Dallas, the tropical moisture with the biggest impact came from Manuel.

Periods of rain and thunderstorms occurred Thursday afternoon and evening as well but the greatest periods of heavy rain were centered around Friday.

Temperatures reached a high of 87 degrees, accompanied by heavy rain Friday afternoon and evening.

This front brought enough rain to help relieve the city's drought conditions but it did not bring prolonged rains to the city. The front will move out of the city late Friday night.

After departing Dallas, the front will move to the southeastern coast of Texas and then the Gulf Coast on Saturday.

Temperatures will return to the 80s on Saturday and Sunday for the city's 15th annual Denton Blues Festival in Quarkertown Park.

Saturday's skies will be partly sunny during the day and clear during the evening for the Oak Cliff Cultural Center's Fall Gallery Walk and Bike Warm.

For the first official day of fall on Sunday, skies will be bright and sunny with high temperatures reaching 86 degrees.
