Shower and thunderstorm chances will persist tonight after midnight. The best chances will be north of I-20. Cloud to ground lightning and brief heavy rainfall will be the main threats with any storms, although gusty winds will be possible with any stronger storms.
A cold front will bring additional chances for showers and storms on Monday, mostly near and south of I-20. Locations across Central Texas have the highest potential to see a stronger storm capable of gusty downburst winds during the afternoon or evening hours. The cold front will bring slightly cooler and drier air to North Texas, but Central Texas will still see heat index values near 105 during the afternoon.
Slightly below normal temperatures are anticipated Tuesday through Thursday. High temperatures during this time will be in the low to mid 90s. There is a slight chance for a few storms Thursday mainly near the Red River. Otherwise, precipitation chances will be slim to none.
With heat index values near 105 degrees today in some parts of North and Central Texas, be sure to protect your family and pets from the heat!
