Our first main wave of rain has moved east of the region but scattered rain will continue this afternoon with temperatures staying in the 40s to around 50 degrees. However, with an east wind of 10- 15 mph, it will feel cooler. Most of the rain activity will occur as light rain or showers but an isolated thunderstorm or two is possible. No severe weather or flooding issues are expected this afternoon. Better rain chances this afternoon are generally across our southeastern counties.
Another damp and cool day is expected on Sunday, as highs will struggle into the lower 50s. Highest chances of rain will be south of the I-20 corridor where localized flooding will be possible. North winds around 10 mph can be expected.
Monday will be the last day for widespread rainfall across the region, but our active weather won't stop there. A strong cold front will enter the area toward the middle of the week bringing very cold weather to North and Central Texas for Thursday and Friday.
