Weather officials are predicting the return of showers and storms by the end of the week into the weekend, some of which could be strong to severe.

Weather experts initially predicted a pleasant week of weather across North Texas, with cool mornings and warm afternoons. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Fort Worth predicted a chance for scattered showers and storms with temperatures in the 60s, as previously reported by The Dallas Express

The NWS expects a mild cold front to move through the region on December 5, with temperatures expected to remain in the 60s.

“Winds will become northerly near 10 mph behind the weak front. Clear and cold weather again tonight, with mostly sunny and mild temperatures mostly in the 60s once again on Wednesday,” per the NWS website. “Southerly winds to 10 mph will return to western parts of North and Central Texas on Wednesday.”

Meteorologists expect a warming trend to continue throughout the week before rain chances return in the evening hours of December 8 into December 9. Some of these storms could develop to be strong or even severe.

Matt Stalley, a meteorologist with the NWS in Fort Worth, told The Dallas Express that the main hazards for these storms would be wind and hail, with the possibility of tornadoes. However, the overall risk for these storms is low, and any developed storms are expected to remain clear of the metroplex.

“It’s tough to say right now as to where exactly the storms are gonna be, but right now it looks like the most favorite areas are gonna be pretty far east of the immediate DFW area into East Texas,” said Stalley in a phone interview.

Rain chances are expected to leave the region by December 10, with “seasonal temperatures” expected to persist the following week.
