Quick Notes:

  • Rain chances return Monday through Wednesday
  • Low risk of severe thunderstorms

Monday – Wednesday rain chances

It won’t rain constantly and everywhere through the middle part of the week, but on-and-off rain chances are possible through Wednesday. Also, this does not look to be a repeat of the last couple of weeks with significant severe weather and multiple rounds of widespread,heavy rain in a row.

Here’s a day-by-day breakdown and timing of what we expect right now:

Monday – Isolated to scattered showers and storms are possible during the day. Most of North Texas will stay dry as coverage of rain is not high, but scattered rain will be out there. Any showers or storms should dissipate heading through the evening with the loss of daytime heating.


Tuesday – The day will likely start off dry, but a round of showers and storms is possible mainly across the western half of North Texas during the day. IF that round of rain is not out there during the day, a round of showers and storms is more likely during the nighttime hours for the same area. Overall severe threat is low, but can’t rule out some strong wind gusts and hail with the strongest storms.

Wednesday – Lingering showers or storms are possible to start the day with perhaps some afternoon redevelopment mainly across the eastern and southern parts of North Texas.


Late week heat

A rain-free stretch begins Thursday. Temperatures will soar into the mid-90s through the weekend and into early next week. A constant southerly wind and rain from the previous weeks will keep humidity elevated. Expect the heat index to be higher than the actual temperature just about every day through the weekend. Make sure to take heat precautions!
