CALMER DAY: We still have a few lingering showers ongoing across the southeastern portions of North Texas early this morning; those will end over the next few hours, and by the afternoon, rain should be confined to the southern part of the state. We turn mostly sunny later today with highs in the low 70s later this afternoon.
TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY: Not much change. We continue to forecast cool nights and warm, spring days with afternoon highs in the low to mid 70s and morning lows in the 50-60 degree range. The sky remains mostly sunny on both days with a few clouds returning by Thursday.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Another cold front approaches the southern plains region by this Friday, with a surface low positioned somewhere in the Oklahoma Panhandle. With favorable thermodynamics for severe weather, normally we would go ahead and mention a chance of severe storms, however, a strong "cap", or a 'lid' to prevent storms from intensifying, will mitigate any chances of seeing severe storms for now. For now, we will introduce a small chance of scattered showers and storms Friday evening through Saturday morning. The high on Friday will be in the upper 70s.
Once the rain moves through Saturday morning, we will deal with cool air from the cold front. Highs will be in the low 60s on Saturday and Sunday, featuring mostly cloudy skies.
NEXT WEEK: It looks like much of next week will also consist of mostly sunny and spring like conditions with gradually warmer temperatures throughout the week. At least the early part of next week looks dry. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
