Keep the umbrellas and galoshes handy, as more showers and thunderstorms are expected across North Texas for the remainder of the work week, with some storms having the potential to become severe.
“By tonight, a complex of storms may move into the region from the north/northwest. Some storms could become strong to severe, with gusty winds and hail,” the NWS posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
The greatest potential for severe weather will likely be north of the metroplex near the Red River area. The high temperature for both Thursday and Friday is expected to reach around 93 degrees, with a heat index of 98.
There is a 50% chance of storms Friday morning before skies clear later in the day. Saturday is expected to be sunny and clear, with a high near 97 degrees.
Weather forecasters anticipate more rain with the arrival of a cold front on Sunday, with high chances of precipitation from the evening hours of September 24 into the following day.
Local heavy rainfall is possible, especially east of the I-35 corridor, the NWS posted on X.
Despite the cold front, temperatures across the region on Sunday and Monday are expected to remain in the 80s and 90s as far as daily highs go and drop overnight to the 60s and 70s.
Residents are advised to remain weather-aware this weekend as storms develop.
“It’s still too early to assess storm intensity, so make sure to keep up with the forecast this weekend,” said the NWS in an X post.
Looking further into next week, weather forecasters are predicting partly cloudy skies on Tuesday and Wednesday, with high temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s.
