Weather officials are predicting rainy conditions for this upcoming weekend.
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has predicted rain will return to the region this weekend. While there is a possibility for some storms, no severe conditions are expected to occur.
Weather officials had initially predicted a wet beginning to the week with isolated chances of storms possible for Memorial Day and May 30, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.
The NWS recorded one strong system moved through the region during the afternoon hours of May 30. Sarah Barnes, a meteorologist with the NWS in Fort Worth, told The Dallas Express that this storm produced gusts of wind resulting in some damage to structures. Lightning strikes in Frisco also damaged homes.
“I believe in the northern parts of the metroplex, just tree damage and some minor structural damage, but at this time of the year, we’re definitely looking at maybe some more storms that produce more wind damage than anything,” said Barnes.
Weather officials predict that the remainder of this week will be dry, with a chance of isolated showers and storms to the southwest.
No severe weather is expected to result from these possible storms. Similar conditions to those seen on May 30, such as gusty winds, lightning, and locally heavy rain, are the only possible hazards.
Temperatures across the region are expected to remain in the upper 80s and into the 90s.
June 2 will see chances of rain and storms return to the region. These chances of rain will persist into the weekend.
“So not looking at a complete wash up for the weekend, but certainly some off and on rain possible,” said Barnes. “Also not looking at much of a severe threat, but could be looking at some heavy rain and maybe some flooding issues, especially with any areas that receive higher rainfall totals,” she continued.
Chances of rain will start as isolated on June 2 but be more widespread on June 4. Barnes said the best chance of rain will occur in the afternoon hours of June 4.
