After widespread showers have finally shifted east of DFW, cloudy and cool weather remain across North Texas. More isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms will develop this afternoon, mainly east of I/35 into East Texas. No severe weather is expected. Highs today will top the upper 50s to near 60° locally, but colder temperatures (i.e. 40s) in our far western zones behind the cold front are expected.
The front will move through this evening, causing falling temperatures and a few more showers. Clouds will stay tonight, but temperatures will fall into the 30s.
Tomorrow will be a gloomy, cold day across North Texas. Widespread cloud cover will stick around all day, with highs in the 40s across North Texas. A few morning sprinkles or a very light shower isn't ruled out.
By Thursday, a weak shortwave will approach from the west. Clouds will be widespread throughout the day, and isolated showers will be possible through the day with highs in the mid 40s. A few sleet showers are possible west of DFW where temperatures may stay in the 30s. As we head into the overnight, showers will increase in coverage (about half of North Texas will recieve measurable rainfall) and lows will be in the 30s. Cold air aloft may allow for light sleet and snow at times especially west of I/35, but no accumulations or impacts are expected. Best precipitation coverage will be in Central Texas, however all liquid precipitation is forecast for our southern zones.
As the final system departes, chilly but clearing weather is expected for Friday. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
The weekend will be sunny and rather warm for this time of year, with highs in the mid 60s on Saturday and low 70s on Sunday with mostly sunny skies.
Looking in into next week, a rather warm start with highs in the 70s is expected for Monday before a strongly indicated arctic front is likely on Tuesday. This will bring highs possibly in the 30s and 40s. Some wintry precipitation may be a possibility during this timeframe, however it is too far out for any details or certainty on the potential.
