It will be mostly sunny and warmer today with highs ranging in the upper 70s to mid to possibly upper 80s. Light and variable winds will become east and southeast at 5 to 10 mph during the day.
Rain chances will increase later tonight as an upper level disturbance swings into the Plains ahead of a cold front. A cluster of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop across West Texas by evening and will approach the area from the west. Showers and a few storms may move into parts of the region especially north and west of the Metroplex. Severe weather is not expected at this time.
As a cold front moves through North and Central Texas on Wednesday, rain chances will continue across most of the region. High temperatures will occur in the morning with temperatures falling into the upper 50s by afternoon. Rain chances will be highest north of I-20 into the Red River counties.
Here are your temperature trends from Mid-Week and into the Weekend.

Experimental Convective Parameters For North Texas

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth is now offering Experimental Convective Parameters on this website!

The analysis is computed using surface observation data and the latest RUC model for all upper level data.  This is different from the SPC mesoanalysis web page, because no model analysis is used for the surface fields.  This means our analysis is heavily weighted to the latest surface observation. Thus, some small "bulls-eye" type areas may occur if a surface observation is outlying or incorrect.  Bad observations are periodically quality controlled by forecasters and removed.  The advantage to this technique is that our convective parameters will have a higher resolution and be capable of rapid adjustments if the atmosphere is rapidly changing.

The parameters are generated hourly, with the generation process starting around 15 minutes past the hour. The images should be available by 20 past each hour.

We are currently producing the following images:
