Rain Kept In Check For North Texas

While our next wave of upper level energy is moving into North Texas, a large area of showers and storms created by this upper level energy is running into more stable air that is helping to keep the approaching rain in check while the bulk of the upper level energy swings into South Texas.  Only spotty showers are expected for the Metroplex and much of the northern half of North Texas through the day, as the better chances for showers and storms are for areas well south of our area.

The exception is a complex of rain along the Red River being triggered by an elevated frontal boundary about 3,000’ up.  This complex had already dropped a quarter to a half inch of rain in parts of Montague, Cooke and Grayson counties.  Rainfall amounts near an inch are possible before the complex dies off.

Activity Comes To A Close This Evening

With the energy translating east through the state, small rain chances will continue into the evening hours then drop off altogether.  Clouds will linger in our skies through Wednesday morning then will make way for mostly sunny skies and mild temps by Wednesday afternoon.

Mild Pattern Rest of Week

Wednesday and Thursday will be quiet with mostly sunny skies.  The small storm chances in the Thursday forecast are not until the late evening hours and there is a good chance they won’t pan out.  That would mean our next chance of rain won’t arrive until Friday morning’s commute.  High temperatures for the rest of the week will range from 76-81 degrees.

Friday/Saturday’s Upper Level Low

The system will likely track south of North Texas and with smaller rain chances for us and the lion’s share of rain from Hill Country into South Texas and the coastal plain.  This will also put us on the side of the system that will take away a severe weather threat and bring showers.  A lingering chance for showers exists for the first part of the day Saturday with the chances dropping off through the afternoon.

Mother’s Day

Looking great for moms!  Mostly sunny with morning lows near 58 and afternoon highs near 78 and light winds.
