Severe storms will return to the metroplex later this week.

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has predicted the chance of severe thunderstorms across the region on March 23 to March 24. The main risks from these potential storms will be hail and damaging winds.

A low tornado risk has been associated with these possible severe storms.

The NWS confirmed that an EF-1 tornado passed through Irving as part of the last wave of severe storms, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

The NWS predicts that these storms will arrive in the metroplex into the late afternoon and evening hours of March 23 and persist into the early morning hours of March 24.

Despite these predictions, the NWS warns that there is “still a considerable amount of uncertainty with regards to timing and coverage” with these storms.

Following near-freezing temperatures experienced last week, the metroplex is experiencing a warming trend as temperatures rise into the mid-70s and 80s across the region on March 22.

This warm weather is expected to persist through the remainder of the week.

After these storms leave the region, the NWS predicts that dry and “pleasant” weather will persist throughout the weekend. Rain chances are expected to conclude by the afternoon of March 24, with temperatures in the mid-70s and lower 80s.

Madi Gordon with the NWS in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express that these swings in temperature are not “necessarily abnormal.”

“We do kind of go through these temperature swings especially this time of year,” said Gordon.

March 25 could bring mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the upper 70s.

Rain chances across the region will return on March 26. Scattered chances of thunderstorms will persist, with high temperatures rising into the upper 70s.

Severe weather conditions are expected to persist in California as yet another atmospheric river impacts the state bringing several inches of rain and snow, as previously reported by The Dallas Express. Records are expected to have been broken in this system. However, officials are awaiting a break in the weather pattern before quantifying the degree.
