Rain expected in parts of North Texas on Sunday and Monday, but drier days are possible this week

Storms are expected to dump more rain on parts of North Texas on Sunday and Monday, but drier conditions could follow.

Forecasts for Sunday afternoon include isolated to scattered storms, although the National Weather Service forecast did not indicate exactly where the rain would fall. Another round of storms will move into North Texas late Sunday into early Monday morning before the sun rises.

While the earlier storms carry low wind and hail risk, the latest storms could have stronger, damaging winds.

The chances of daytime storms in Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday will depend on what a storm complex moving south from Oklahoma does, according to the weather service.

“While they are expected to weaken as they move through North Texas, remaining boundaries could produce additional storms in the afternoon and evening,” the forecast said.

Some storms may be strong to severe, with damaging hail posing the greatest threat.

Rainfall totals measured in May were 7.8 inches at DFW International Airport and 9.72 inches at Dallas Love Field Airport, according to weather service data. The “normal amount” for those locations in May is 4.78 inches and 4.57 inches, respectively.

Storm chances for Tuesday and Wednesday are low, but chances may return on Thursday after a weak cold front moves into the region.

“While we keep storm chances low for portions of North Texas each morning, most locations are expected to remain dry,” the forecast said.

Temperatures are expected to rise well into the 90s by mid-week, with the heat index creeping towards triple digits on Tuesday.
