It will be mostly cloudy Sunday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms ahead of a dryline and cold front. Highs will be in the mid 60s to lower 70s. South winds 10 to 20 mph will shift to the southwest late morning through the afternoon as the dryline moves east. The dryline should be near/or just east of the I-35 corridor by early afternoon and a few storms ahead of the dryline could produce some gusty winds. Skies will start to clear behind the dryline.
Mild and sunny conditions are expected next week. Highs will start out in the mid 50s to lower 60s on Monday, with a slow but steady warming trend expected through the week. By Friday, highs will be in the low to mid 60s for most areas in North and Central Texas. These temperatures will be near to slightly above normal for this time of the year. Rain chances are expected to be very low next week, with generally sunny conditions expected.
