Cloud cover has increased today across North Texas.  This is a sign that there is more moisture in the atmosphere than what we have seen in the past few days.  This moisture will eventually help lead to some showers and even thunderstorm chances this weekend.

THIS EVENING

Mostly cloudy skies with a few spotty showers possible mainly north and east of Dallas.  Temperatures will stay in the 60s thru the evening.

TONIGHT

Mostly cloudy and breezy at times with temperatures only falling into the upper 50s.

TOMORROW (FRIDAY)

Mostly cloudy again with high temperatures in the low 70s and south winds 10-20 mph.  It will be mostly dry thru the day but in the evening a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible mainly along the Red River.

SATURDAY

Mostly cloudy again.  There will a scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms with us in the morning.  It does not look like the storms will be severe, but I can’t rule out a few storms that may be on the strong side with gusty winds and some small hail.  Saturday afternoon will see rain coverage decrease with mostly dry weather and mild weather for the second half of the day.  High temperatures on Saturday will be in the upper 70s.

SUNDAY

Storms will develop in northwest Texas and western Oklahoma Saturday evening and night.  This area shown below shaded in yellow has a risk of severe weather Saturday evening.  The storms that form here will move southeast into North Texas Saturday night into Sunday morning.  The storms will weaken as they move into our area.  I don’t anticipate widespread severe weather, but just like Saturday morning, a few stronger storms can not be ruled out.

STRONG COLD FRONT ON MONDAY

A strong cold front will arrive Monday afternoon/evening.  Highs on Monday will be in the 60s but falling temperatures Monday evening will make for chilly weather Tuesday and Wednesday.  High temperatures those two days will only be in the 50s and if we have cloud cover and rain we may barely make it to 50s.  That would be nearly 25 colder than average for Tuesday and Wednesday.  Rain chances do look decent for Monday night into Tuesday.
