Dallas Fort Worth Airport recorded its first rainfall in more than a month Friday, but it wasn't enough to make a dent in the dry conditions across the area.

While nearly everyone saw some rain, the amounts were relatively light, said National Weather Service meteorologist Nick Hampshire. The showers have now moved out of the Metroplex

"On average, it was less than a quarter of an inch but it looks like most areas had some precipitation," Hampshire said.

DFW Airport reported .19 inches of rainfall and Alliance Airport recorded .20 of an inch.

For DFW, it was the first measurable rainfall since Nov. 11, when .05 of an inch fell.

Forecasters are say they expect another round of rain Friday night.

"It will be between 10 p.m. and midnight but it will move through pretty quickly," Hampshire said. "There might be a little thunder and lightning but we aren't expecting anything severe."

Once the rain moves out, it is expected to be dry for at least the next week.

Temperatures will warm up this weekend with high temperatures in the lower 70s on Saturday and near 70 on Sunday.
