RADAR CHECK - A few scattered showers and thunderstorms are about this morning in North Texas, mainly to the west of the North-Central Texas coverage area.
This will be another case of another round of numerous/widespread showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. As a result, we will not warm much this afternoon, and temperatures will most likely stay in the mid 50s for the rest of the day.
FOOTBALL WEATHER - For the high school football games tonight, the game will be played under an overcast sky with showers and thunderstorms likely at any time. Temperatures will remain in the mid 50s throughout the game.
THE WEEKEND - We will mention a chance of morning light rain, but it will not rain all day. Otherwise, expect Saturday to be another cool day with a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures in the upper 60s. The sky fully clears Saturday night, and sunshine finally returns in full force Sunday. Saturday and Sunday morning will be very cool with lows in the upper 40s. The high Sunday will be in the mid 60s, about 13 degrees below our average high of 78°.
NEXT WEEK - Monday and Tuesday looks mostly dry with highs in the low 60s. A wave from the Gulf of Mexico moves into Texas which will cause a surge of moisture, enough to introduce the chance of scattered/numerous showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday. We start to clear out during the latter half of the week to a mix of sun and clouds on most afternoons. Highs will mostly be in the 60 degree range with morning lows in the 50s. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - The Atlantic Basin continues to remain quiet, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected for at least the next week.
