After a string of 100 degree days in North Texas, a change in the weather pattern is on the way, that will help cool off our temperatures and provide us with a chance of rain as we enter next week.
Currently, we are under an upper level ridge that is helping to divert storm systems around Texas. As we head into next week, that ridge will move off to our west, which will allow an upper level low to move into North Texas from the northeast. This will provide lift that will help create storms next week. This is welcome news, as most of the area is suffering from a drought.
The rain chances start sunday, heres a look at what we’re forecasting coverage wise for North Texas.
Monday brings our best chance of rain, with the bullseye just North of the Metroplex.
Tuesday the rain shifts off to our west, with the best chances in our northwestern counties, west of a line from Bowie to Bridgeport to Mineral Wells.
Before the rain chances happen, we have to deal with one more hot day tomorrow, Mostly Sunny skies with a high near 100 and lows near 80.
Here’s your 7 day forecast:
One last thing to note, we did have some severe weather move through the area yesterday afternoon, causing damage in Frisco where a few fences, roofs, and trees were knocked down as winds approached 75 mph. In Trinity Park just west of Downtown Ft. Worth, where a few weak trees were snapped due to 65mph winds. This was from Microbursts that occur when sinking air rushes down out of the storm and can sometimes hit the ground and spread out at a high rate of speed.
