Chance of Rain Next Few Days.

Posted: Updated:

This weekend into the early part of the coming week will be more unsettled with a decent chance of showers/storms each day. As you can see from the QPF map on the right, there is the potential for as much as 2" of rain or more over the next 3 days. Keep in mind, this is an areal average, and some locations could receive much more than that in a relatively short period of time so local drainage may be an issue for some folks. Also, although the severe threat is quite low, it is non-zero so some locally damaging winds/hail may also occur.

Showers/storms are expected to be developing during the course of the day today which together with the overcast skies should keep us in the 80s to near 90 for an afternoon high. The clouds overnight together with southerly winds kept us from cooling much this morning so it will be a warm, muggy day but at least not as hot as yesterday which topped out at 97 for the hottest so far this year.

Some of the showers/storms will extend into the overnight hours tonight and perhaps into Sunday morning as well. Father's Day itself should be partly to mostly cloudy with only a few scattered showers/storms before a more widespread round of rain moves this way for the Sunday night/Monday morning time frame. The way things are looking right now, much of the day Sunday should have mostly cloudy skies with a 30% chance of rain and a high near 90. As mentioned, a much better chance is expected for the Sunday night through the Monday morning time frame.

After Monday, the chances should be focused further south due to a weak front that will be moving through the state and stalling out along the Red River. At least the cloudy skies and scattered showers/storms will combine to provide at least a brief break in the heat. Daytime highs through the middle of the coming week should generally be in the 80s to near 90. This is all due to some changes in the wind pattern aloft as the ridge of high pressure that has been sitting on top of us is shifting eastward and weakening. However, by later in the week, that ridge will likely be re-asserting itself, at least for a short time so look for hot, humid conditions to return by late this week into the coming weekend.

In the meantime, stay tuned and check back for updates.
