A strong disturbance has developed widespread showers and storms overnight sending them into North Texas Tuesday morning.

Your morning commute will be disturbed with widespread rain. Heavy rain is likely and isolated flooding is possible especially in low-lying and flood-prone spots throughout the day. After a wet start to Tuesday, North Texas may experience a slight break with highs reaching the 70s again.

However, it won't be a long break. An approaching cold front will bring another round of rain Tuesday evening. Flooding concerns will increase again especially east of DFW where the highest rainfall can be expected. Widespread severe weather is not expected with Tuesday's rounds of rain. However, some storms could produce brief wind gusts and small hail. Our main concern will be flooding. And we're not done yet! Widespread rain will continue for the start of your Wednesday before moving east. The rest of your Wednesday will be windy and much cooler! Temperatures will be in the 40s behind the front. Though scattered showers and storms will continue Thursday & Friday, the heavy rain potential will diminish. Temperatures will quickly bounce back to the 50s & 60s for the rest of the work week. Additional showers and storms will be possible Saturday before (finally!) a dry Sunday ends the weekend!

Bottom Line: Numerous showers and storms are expected this week, but it won't be raining all hours of the day. Be prepared for multiple rounds of rain during the day with breaks between them. Though the severe threat is low this week, a few storms could produce strong winds and small hail. The bigger concern is heavy rain and the potential of flooding especially Tuesday & Wednesday.
