Blue Sky - With lots of sunshine in North Texas, temperatures are in the 60s, which is about 2 to three degrees below normal high temperatures for mid march. The rest of the day will be in the mid 60s. Tonight will be clear and cool as we will only reach the low 50s during the overnight hours.
Warming Trend - A warming trend begins tomorrow, which we expect highs to be in the mid 70s, with even higher temperatures on Friday with highs in the mid 80s in most spots. Lows will stay in the low 60s Friday morning. I do think the majority of Friday will be dry, however, we still could see a couple of showers on the radar as a surface front approaches from the northwest and a surface low forms to the north. There is a marginal risk for severe storms defined for the eastern 1/3rd of East Texas for Friday.
The Weekend - Confidence in the storm situation for the weekend is increasing as model runs are more consistent. Saturday morning will be mostly dry, but the afternoon will bring the possibility of scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region as a surface front stalls somewhere in North Texas. More rain will become possible Sunday afternoon as well, with thunderstorms fewer in number. Severe weather is currently not expected, but a few strong thunderstorms will be possible, and rain amounts should stay below a quarter of an inch for North Texas. For now, both days look mostly cloudy with highs in the low 80s.
Next Week - For now, most of next week looks dry and mild with highs in the mid 70s for most days with a mix of sun and clouds. No signs of any severe weather issues at this present time. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
