Rain is 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 Sunday and Monday in parts of North Texas, but drier conditions are possible.

Sunday afternoon’s forecast included isolated or scattered storms, although the National Weather Service forecast did not indicate where exactly the rain would fall. Another line of storms will move into North Texas late Sunday into early Monday morning before the sun rises.

While the previous storms have little risk of wind and hail, the latest storms could have stronger, more 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 across North Texas, the remaining boundaries may bring additional storms in the afternoon and evening,” the forecast says.

Some of the storms could be strong to severe, with damaging hail the main threat.

The total amount of rainfall measured in May was 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, although they may return Thursday after a weak cold front moves into the region.

“While we maintain low thunderstorm chances for parts of North Texas each morning, most locations are expected to remain dry,” the weather forecast says.

Temperatures are expected to rise into the 90s by midweek and the heat index will reach triple digits on Tuesday.

North Texans can expect more rain after dealing with severe storms and power outages throughout the week, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Isolated and scattered storms are expected over the weekend that could bring large hail, damaging winds and localized flooding.

After more than four days without power, some Dallas restaurants see big losses

The blackout that began Tuesday morning has not yet been resolved in several parts of the city.
