Only occasional rain will fall across the Dallas area through Wednesday night. The heavy rain that pushed though the area on Tuesday will subside to only sparse showers for Wednesday.
Some of the moisture from Tropical Storm Sonia combined with a storm system marching across the United States to bring the rain and thunderstorms across much of the Plains through the midweek.
Flash flooding will be a risk with this storm system across central and eastern Texas, especially for areas that have not fully dried after last week's downpours. However, since this is a fast-paced storm, the flood risks will diminish as Wednesday wears on.
Highs for these rainy days will begin in the low 70s but will drop to the lower 60s by the time the storm departs. The overnight hours will have chilly lows in the lower 40s.
After Wednesday, the Dallas area will dry out with near-normal temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s.
