We’ve been watching storms far to the west overnight These storms are the result of upper-level system that brings storm into our forecast for Easter Sunday.

A fews of storms became showers that moved into north Texas this morning. Most of us just saw cloud skies.

Later in the day we expect storms to erupt in the daytime heating in as the upper-level system to our west approaches. The best chance for strong storms will be across the northwest portions of our area:

The dryline to our west will likely produce some severe storms late in the day as well. These storms will be well to our west around Abilene and move toward our western counties as the day ends. We are not expecting that severe weather to reach our western edge though it could provide some rain.

On Monday the storm chances increase over all of north Texas. Some morning sunshine will help produce some afternoon storms along and ahead of an approaching cold front. The front sweeps in late in the increasing the storm risk to 50% for the metro area:

Severe weather is possible Monday. Right now it appears the highest risk is across our north. We’ll have to watch the set-up of the upper trough and the timing of the front so to keep everyone apprised of the situation.

These storms will be gone by Tuesday, we’ll have highs in the 80’s for the rest of the week. There could be strong-to-severe storms form along the dryline on Thursday. Otherwise most of the work week will be dry.
