Moisture from once-Tropical Storm Octave could enhance flash flooding in Dallas through Tuesday night and Wednesday midday.

The storm's moisture streamed into Texas on Sunday where flooding was reported.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Joseph McCormick said the moisture could later interact with a front draped over Texas, setting the stage for more flooding.

Rain is needed in Dallas as the city was at 17 percent of its normal precipitation, or 0.26 inches, for the first 13 days of October.

Humidity will accompany the showers and thunderstorms to start the week. However, on Wednesday temperatures will drop into the low 60s, making for a chilly day in the city.

The rain is expected to end Wednesday. Partly sunny skies and warmer temperatures will return Thursday and Friday with more comfortable highs in the mid-70s.
