The threat for very heavy rainfall and flooding will increase across all of North Texas Monday through Wednesday of next week. A slow moving upper low will combine with a stalled frontal boundary and copious amounts of moisture to produce several days of rain and thunderstorms. Many areas will see 2-4" of rain with heavier amounts possible.
A diffuse front will slide southward and stall along the I-20 corridor on Saturday/Saturday afternoon. Temperatures in the wake of boundary won't be much cooler, however. Areas across East TX may remain a bit cooler due to cloud cover. Areas across the Big Country and Concho Valley will see high temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. On Saturday Night, the frontal boundary will lift northward and may spark showers and perhaps a few storms. A few storms could be strong with mainly a hail threat. Overnight lows should be mild with readings in the upper 50s and 60s.
A dryline will move into the region Sunday afternoon and bring increasing storm chances. Any storms that develop will have a potential to become severe with large hail and damaging winds. The best storm chances and severe potential will be west of I-35. Afternoon highs Sunday will be mainly in the 80s, with a few lower 90s in the west.
We will have a SKYWARN Basic Class on Saturday, March 24th in Rockwall (Rockwall County). The class will be from 11 am to 1 pm. Classes are free and registration is not required! We hope to see you there!
