After a drizzly, foggy, and mild day across much of North Texas, heavy rains will follow suite tomorrow afternoon through Thursday. Some spots of NTX could receive 1-2” of rain with isolated higher totals up to 4” possible, mainly north of DFW.
Temperatures will be mild tomorrow in the 70s, but Thursday will be much colder. Morning temperatures will start in the 60s before falling through the 40s in the afternoon with rain coming to an end from west to east. Lows Thursday night will be in the 30s, with highs Friday only in the 40s and 50s. Some patchy frost is possible.
The weekend will be warmer will highs rebounding into the 60s and possibly the 70s by Sunday. Dry weather is expected.
A strong front will roll into NTX sometime on Monday. The timing of this front is uncertain, but it appears likely for rather widespread precipitation. As the cold air settles in Monday into early Tuesday, we will watch for a threat of wintry precipitation. Right now, the forecast is uncertain on what happens during this timeframe. It does bear watching since some ensembles and models do hint at a more significant wintry weather event. Highs will be much colder Monday, likely falling through the day. Temperatures will likely be in the 20s Monday night, struggling to reach 40° by Tuesday with sunshine returning. Again, the overall pattern is uncertain. The set up does favor some sort of wintry precipitation, but exactly how cold it can get is very uncertain as of now. Therefore, opted to keep a very low chance of a wintry mix during this timeframe.
Stay tuned for updates the next few days as we get a better handle on this system.
A gradual warm up will take place later in the week, finally reaching the 50s by mid to late week. Dry weather is expected beyond Tuesday.
