Warming Up Today; Rain Possible Sunday

Posted by Donovan Neal on Friday, January 19, 2018

Cold Start? - In North Texas (the land of really strange weather), temperatures are above freezing in the DFW metro but below freezing to the north.  The temperatures increase the farther south you go.  Despite what everyone has right now, one thing we can be thankful for is not having to deal with single digits lows now.  We should warm nicely to the upper 50s by the afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds.

The Weekend - We start the day in the mid 50s on Saturday, but then we warm to the upper 60s by the afternoon, something that haven't seen in a while.  A mix of sun and clouds throughout the day is also forecast.

The rain on Sunday will begin during the morning hours as scattered showers, we will forecast a chance of a few showers throughout the day, becoming more organized during the evening, where the SPC has introduced a "marginal" risk of severe storms for areas to the east of Dallas.

The rain for DFW should end at around 7PM, and the we should climb to the upper 60s.  Rain totals should remain below 1/2 for most locations.

Next Week - The last full week of January should remain generally dry with highs in the low 60s, seasonably warm for this time of the year.  Then, we introduce another chance of showers and storms next weekend, with possible severe potential, but that's a long way away.
