North Texans may want to pack something warm for the next few days, with weather experts expecting a cool start to the week ahead of chances of rain by the weekend.
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth (NWS) has predicted a chilly start to the week, with temperatures in the low to mid-50s on Monday across the region during the day and 30s during the overnight hours.
Clouds are expected to clear over the course of the day, leaving clear conditions by nightfall.
Temperatures will gradually warm through the week starting on Tuesday, with temperatures rising into the low 60s. The weather will remain “dry and pleasant” through the majority of the week, and North Texans can expect fair conditions on Valentine’s Day.
“It’s going to be a fairly quiet day. It’s going to be good, mid-60s, no precipitation, and sunny to mostly sunny skies,” Juan Hernandez, a meteorologist with NWS, told The Dallas Express.
Temperatures are expected to warm into the 70s on February 14. However, overnight temperatures will drop into the 40s and 50s and linger throughout the week.
Chances of rain are expected to return on February 16 as gulf moisture approaches from the south and a cold front approaches from the northwest. While there is a chance for showers and isolated storms in the DFW area, these systems are expected to remain southeast of the metroplex at this time.
Chances for precipitation are expected to continue into the weekend.
