It'll be a mostly sunny and warm Monday with just a few high passing Clouds. South winds of 10 to 15 MPH and high temperatures in the upper 70s to mid 80s are forecast across North and Central TX. There will be little to no threat for rain!
Strong south-southwesterly winds 15 to 20 mph and gusty are expected Tuesday afternoon. High temperatures will rise to between 90 and 95 degrees west of I-35, and between 85 and 90 degrees east. In addition to the very warm temperatures and winds, humidity values will fall to between 15 and 25 percent across far western parts of North-Central Texas (see orange arc) where an elevated to high fire danger will exist Tuesday afternoon. Outdoor burning will be discourage across this area. The record high for DFW on April 25 (Tuesday) is 91, and 94 degrees at Waco. DFW will have the potential to tie or surpass the record high temperature.
A couple of thunderstorm chances exist this week. The first will be on Wednesday ahead of a cold front that is forecast to move through North and Central TX. The best chances will be east of the I-35 corridor. Should storms breach the cap, they will likely become strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds being the main hazards. The tornado threat appears LOW. The second and more conditional risk for storms will be Friday and Friday afternoon. The chance for rain is less than 20%. If storms develop, large hail and damaging winds are likely.
Temperatures tonight will be about 10 degrees warmer compared to last night. Expect temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s with a south wind between 10-15 mph. Clouds will remain mostly clear this weekend.
There will be a risk for strong to severe storms this upcoming weekend. There are a lot of details that won't be apparent until later in the week, so stay tuned for updates to the forecast!
