Monday (MLK Day)

One last quiet and sunny day on Monday. It will be warmer too with afternoon highs climbing into the 60s for most places.

Sunshine and above normal high temps Monday afternoon.

Rest of This Week

Clouds and rain chances return on Tuesday. A cold front will move into the area and scattered showers will be possible during the day along with cooler temps.

Best chance for rain on Tuesday will be across the southern half of North Texas. D-FW rain chances will be confined mainly to the morning, and an all day rain is very unlikely.

Highest coverage of rain will be across southern North Texas.

Then daily chances for rain will continue the rest of the week and perhaps even into this weekend and the early part of the following week.

North Texas gets stuck in a pattern where disturbances will move overhead, and each disturbance could bring rain to the area.

Will it rain all day, every day, everywhere, each day next week? No.

Scattered showers are possible almost each day this week.

But somewhere in North Texas has a shot at rain each day starting Tuesday lasting through the end of the weekend.

As we move through the week, the timing of those disturbances will become more clear, and we will have a better idea of each day's rain coverage.

Wintry weather looks very unlikely and severe weather chances look very low as well. So it just looks to be a cool and rainy pattern for us.

Rainfall totals of an inch or more are possible over the next 10 days.

When it is all said and done, around 1" to 2" of rain is possible across the area with higher totals to the east and lower totals to the west. Of course, those totals will be fine-tuned as we get closer.
