While the big weather story is the unseasonably warm weather pattern, the CBS 11 Storm Team is tracking a storm complex moving through North Texas today. The complex of storms is being triggered by an upper level system tracking into Oklahoma and will steer most of the activity northwest of the Metroplex. The timing for rain will be during the midday hours into the late afternoon. Here’s how the storm chances stack up.
With the storm complex, an isolated strong to severe segment is possible with 60 mph winds, lightning and quarter sized hail being the concerns. Rain totals generally look less than a tenth of an inch with a few areas along the Red River getting up to a quarter of an inch.
The windy, warm pattern that set up over the weekend will continue through Thursday. The high temperature hit 88 degrees this past Saturday and 89 degrees Sunday. We are forecasting highs a few degrees cooler around 85-87 degrees until the cold front comes in Thursday night. Here’s how highs stack up today plus the weather pattern through Thursday.
The cold front will arrive Thursday evening to bring storm chances mainly for northeastern parts of North Texas with light rain and chilly conditions overspreading most of North Texas for Friday. The chilly air will take over Friday and set the stage for a fairly nice autumn weekend. While there’s still a small 10 percent chance for a shower Saturday, it will be mainly dry with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 50s. Sunday will see sun with temperatures in the 60s.
