Friday Storm Chances and Weekend Warm Up
FRIDAY RAIN CHANCES
We will see a few spotty rain showers on Friday, but Friday evening into Friday night is when we could see a few strong to isolated severe thunderstorms.
An upper level disturbance that is now over Arizona will weaken as it moves over Oklahoma. It will still have enough energy to generate a few showers and thunderstorms. The timing for North Texas looks to be Friday evening along the Red River and then across most of North Texas Friday night into early Saturday morning.
North and northeast areas of North Texas are under a slight risk for severe weather Friday evening and Friday night. The main threat will be some gusty winds 50-60 mph and hail.
TONIGHT – A few spotty showers will be possible mainly NW of DFW. Lows will be mild in the mid 50s.
TOMORROW MORNING – Mostly cloudy skies with a few spotty showers and areas of drizzle. Nothing too heavy or having great coverage. Temperatures will warm into the 60s thru the morning.
FRIDAY AFTERNOON – Spotty showers will be possible especially favoring areas to the NE of DFW. Coverage won’t be too high until late in the evening on Friday. Temperatures will be in the mid to 70s as clouds thin in the afternoon.
FRIDAY EVENING/ FRIDAY NIGHT – Thunderstorms will develop along the Red River and drift south thru the night. This is the time frame where we might see a few severe storms. Greatest coverage will be NE of DFW.
SATURDAY – A few showers and thunderstorms will linger early in the morning, but most of the rain will shift south of I-20 during the day on Saturday. With some sunshine in the afternoon, we will see temperatures warm into the mid 70s.
SUNDAY – Rain chances will be south of North Texas and we will enjoy some sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s.
