Weather officials are expecting clear skies after one last round of storms.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in Fort Worth has predicted dry conditions across the metroplex following one last chance of showers and storms.
Over the past few days, the metroplex experienced muggy conditions with intermittent rain. The NWS reported that overall rain accumulation on Friday, May 12, ranged between one and three inches, while areas beyond the I-35 corridor had accumulations between four and five inches.
An approaching cold front, however, is expected to “even” out these accumulations.
The NWS predicts a chance for showers and thunderstorms to arrive with a weak cold front on Monday. These storms would develop across the metroplex in the late afternoon into the evening.
Scattered showers are expected, and while some thunderstorms are expected to develop, none are expected to become severe.
Ted Ryan with the NWS in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express that possible hazards would be small hail, gusts of wind, and localized flooding.
Tuesday will see these conditions push southward out of the region with temperatures remaining in the 80s — normal temperatures for this time of year. Dry conditions are expected to persist from Tuesday to Thursday.
“The good news though is that behind that front it’s going to be less humid,” said Ryan. “We are looking at lows in the 60s, which is also right around normal for the time of the year, but the humidity won’t be quite as bad as what we’ve had for the past week or so,” he continued.
Ryan said the next chance of rain would occur on Friday as yet another cold front arrives. This front was described as a stronger one that would drop temperatures.
Weather conditions will once again dry out for the weekend but feature “below normal” temperatures with highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s.
