The thunderstorms will start to develop across parts of the Metroplex between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. They will track east/northeast throughout the remainder of the afternoon and eventually clear out tonight.

A few lingering showers can’t be ruled out tonight and Saturday morning. But sunshine is expected after that and through the remainder of the weekend.
