Pleasant March Day - As anticipated, we are under very comfortable and pleasant conditions across North Texas this afternoon with temperatures in the upper 50s/low 60s. We should be fair tonight, with overnight lows in the upper 30s. We won't see any noticeable difference in the weather tomorrow, but highs should warm just a tad to the mid 60s.
Mid-Week - Not much change. Dry weather will continue through the week with pleasant days and cool nights. The high Wednesday should be in the mid 60s, then begin a warming trend on Thursday, in which we end up in the upper 70s Thursday afternoon.
Friday and the Weekend - Moisture will start to return during the day on Friday, and we will mention the chance of a few showers during the evening hours. The day will be particularly mild with highs in the low 80s. For the weekend, expect generally stable conditions with a mix of sun and clouds with the threat for isolated showers and thunderstorms. If instability arises, be prepared for a couple of storms that could turn strong to marginally severe Saturday afternoon and evening. Then rain will linger into the morning hours on Sunday. This will not be a widespread rain event, but be ready for occasional downpours. For now, organized severe weather is not expected, and rain amounts will stay under a quarter of an inch for North Texas. It is a little too early to specifically pinpoint start/stop times of the rain, but be prepared for showers and storms Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning.
The weekend will be very mild with highs in the low to mid 80s.
Next Week - We turn sunny and pleasant for at least the early part of next week. We stay dry and mild with highs mostly in the mid 70s. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
