A few showers and thunderstorms moved through our western areas today. These were caused by a weak upper level disturbance and left over boundaries from storms last night west of the Metroplex, which is a sign that our high pressure system that has been the cause for all of our heat lately is breaking down. Heres a look at your rain chances for the rest of Today.
A weak cold front that is currently in Oklahoma will be moving into our area as we head into the weekend. Meanwhile, an upper low near Florida will track through the Gulf of Mexico towards Texas, bringing with it rich gulf moisture. This combined with the front, should provide enough lift to give us a few rain chances this weekend along with some cooler temperatures.
We’re expecting one more day of triple digit heat in North Texas on Friday. As the high breaks down and the clouds increase, it should be enough to keep temperatures below 100 this weekend. Here are your forecast highs and lows for Friday.
Heres a day by day breakdown of your rain chances. Friday the best chance of rain looks to be to the North and West of the Metroplex. Saturday, the best chance looks to be the metroplex and then areas to the North and East. Sunday, it shifts to the Metroplex and eastward towards Tyler.
As we head into next week, we should remain below 100 with a slight chance of rain each day. Here is your 7 day forecast.
