Today marks the end of “meteorological spring”, the months of March, April, and May.  Temperatures have been below normal again in North Texas for the 3rd month in a row.  This will end up being the coolest spring on record since 1997.

This month will also go down in the books as drier than average.  North Texas is still kept in drought, despite the more frequent storm activity during May.

We end the month today on a very warm & windy note.  North Texas should stay quiet today, as the cap takes over and the upper level triggers stay farther north.  Just a very slim chance of a storm crossing the Red River from Oklahoma late today or a pop-up storm in far eastern parts of North Texas.

Unfortunately for our friends in Oklahoma, it’s another day under the strong risk for severe storms.  More tornadoes are likely there, with the SLIGHT RISK for severe weather as far south as the Red River and as far north as Michigan.

Tomorrow’s a different story with our weather.  A weak cold front will slide into the area from the north during the day.  While most of the upper level energy stays north of us, the lift from the cold front and the hot, humid air ahead of it will support some severe thunderstorms.  The timing for strong storms looks best for afternoon and evening, not the best news for outdoor plans.  There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe thunderstorms over most of our area Saturday.

Rain & storm coverage will be around 50%.  Storms should end by midnight Saturday night.

After Saturday, the weather pattern flips to bring an extended period of quiet conditions in North Texas.  Lows will be in the 60s for the start of the week.  Plenty of sunshine!
