Chances for rain in North Texas dwindling

Sprinkler systems probably won't get to take the day off Monday in North Texas, even though a small cold front blew through the region over the weekend and raised hopes for some rain.

A few scattered showers have fallen, most south and west of the Metroplex, said Nick Hampshire, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

He added that a 20 percent chance for rain continued through Tuesday evening in North Texas, although the best possibility for showers would be along a stalled frontal boundary stretching from Stephenville to Waco.

"We'll be hard-pressed to get something going in the Metroplex," Hampshire said. "It's hard to call it a cold front because it didn't change temperatures much. It only changed the winds around."

Chances for rain diminish Tuesday night, which will leave the rest of the week dry, with highs in the upper 90s.

"Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll get any relief," Hampshire said. "That's pretty typical for July."
