Chances of rain and stormy weather are back again.

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has predicted some potentially wet weather for the remainder of this week.

The agency currently observes cool and overcast conditions persisting across North Texas. Nonetheless, the possibility of rain will loom, with the morning and evening hours of March 8 and the late afternoon hours of March 9 having the strongest chances of precipitation.

That chance will grow even stronger late on March 9 as a cold front arrives, along which the NWS expects widespread showers to develop. The primary concerns from this storm are heavy rain and minor flooding.

Further west, another atmospheric river is expected to impact California and bring flooding to the state amidst its current wintry conditions, according to CBS News.

As for the metroplex, the chances of rain and thunderstorms will be between 50 and 60% through March 9 but will dry out for the weekend.

The NWS in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express that while there is a potential for some of this week’s storms to be strong, they are not expecting anything similar to the widespread storm chances seen in the previous week.

North Texas recently weathered a wave of severe storms across the whole of the region, as previously reported by The Dallas Express. Hail and damaging winds of up to 80 miles per hour were registered.

Monique Sellers with the NWS in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express that there is a “small chance” of seeing a storm capable of producing small hail and some wind gusts this week, but this weather would be “below the severe limit.”

“The front that’s associated with this has been a little bit more slower-moving and the environment is quite a bit different,” said Sellers.

Clear skies are expected to return on March 9. Another cold front may bring a chance of rain again on March 11, followed by cool temperatures into the following week.

The Severe Weather Preparedness Week is now midway through for the NWS. The campaign aims to build awareness and help citizens to better protect themselves when lightning strikes or flash floods occur, among others.
