Widespread showers and much colder temperatures are expected this week across North Texas.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Fort Worth is predicting the possibility of showers and thunderstorms across the metroplex along with dropping temperatures.

This week started with temperatures in the 30s and 40s in the morning hours of March 13.

Temperatures will see another drop on March 14, starting in the 30s and 40s before rising into the 50s and 60s for the rest of the day.

March 14 will have a small chance of isolated showers, but there will likely be little to no accumulation.

The NWS predicts that the metroplex will briefly warm up on March 15 and 16. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 60s and 70s.

Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected to persist throughout the region on March 17, followed by near-freezing temperatures the next day. The NWS warned that it could not rule out the possibility of some of these storms being severe.

A brief wave of storms passed through the metroplex last week, resulting in loss of power for some, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

The NWS predicts temperatures remaining in the 50s during the following days, but freezing temperatures could be possible during those mornings.

“We are also trying to highlight the potential for some near-freezing temperatures early Saturday morning. So right now, [we are] forecasting about the mid-30s, but the further north and west of the metroplex may get to freezing again,” Bianca Garcia with the NWS in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express.

Garcia said that these temperatures would be 10 to 15 degrees lower than normal for this time of year.

The NWS said that the metroplex could possibly see some wintry weather next week. Garcia told The Dallas Express that this has not yet been forecasted and that the NWS would further evaluate this possibility later in the week.

The NWS advised that citizens cover up any sensitive plants ahead of the freezing weather.
