Rain should continue over the next three days, and some residents could see as much as 2 inches by Tuesday.

“We’ll get a break from the rain on Wednesday,” said meteorologist Juan Hernandez at the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth on Sunday.

Before then, North Texans should be prepared for continued showers and scattered thunderstorms. On Sunday, the official rain total recorded at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport was 0.12 inch.

Monday-morning commuters might face some wet roads, as the NWS is calling for a 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Rain chances are still in the forecast for Tuesday morning, with most of the moisture out of the area by noon.

And autumn has taken hold in North Texas. The high for Sunday will be near 72 and the daytime high for Monday could be 69 degrees.

Those high temperatures should stick around for several days.

Morning lows could be in the upper to lower 50s for the rest of the week.
