Grab the Rain Gear for the Weekend, Latest Look at Rain Chances

By Chief Meteorologist Larry Mowry

An unsettled weather pattern will be setting up over North Texas starting this weekend and continuing thru the middle of next week.  This will mean several opportunities for rain.


Increasing clouds, mild and breezy.  Low of 68.  SE 5-15 mph


Mostly cloudy in the morning with a few areas of spotty drizzle, than partly sunny in the afternoon.  Windy, Warm and Humid.  High of 86.  S 15-25 mph


Rain chances will arrive starting first thing Saturday as a cold front approaches from the west.

As of Thursday afternoon, that front is back over the southwest US.

TX Temp Plot

The front will stall over North Texas this weekend which will lead to rain chances off and on thru the weekend.  A few strong to marginally severe storms will be possible on Saturday, but widespread severe weather is not likely.

Here’s a look at rain chances at different time frames this weekend.

So if you are heading to the Red River Rivalry on Saturday, take along the rain poncho.  There is a chance you will need it at some point during the game or during the pre and post party.



The upper level pattern stays unsettled next week with fronts lingering over the area thru about Wednesday.  This will mean more rain chances for us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  It looks like Tuesday night into Wednesday a cold front will move south of DFW and that will put us in cooler air.  High temperatures next Wednesday and Thursday will probably only be in the upper 60s and low 70s.
