The first thing to know about Friday is that the temperatures peaked mid-day in the upper 60s. A cold front will push temperatures down into the mid-50s by the end of Sunday.

It is mostly just light rain in the morning for North Texas. As the front moves in, thunderstorms will start to develop by mid-morning.

The risk of severe weather includes 1″ hail and damaging winds from these storms. The risk is higher for counties east and southeast of the DFW Metroplex.

Rain will continue once the front passes. Most of this will be light rain teamed with falling temperatures and strong northwest winds.
