Saturday: hit-or-miss storms may still bring locally-heavy rain

Saturday: hit-or-miss storms may still bring locally-heavy rain

Storms should diminish overnight. Although generally, temperatures remain warm with a hot afternoon and limited rain chances for the rest of the day.

Late this afternoon and into this evening, storms will likely develop across western and northwestern North Texas.

We start off with mostly cloudy skies across the Mid-South, with temps warming up to 84°; heat index: 87°. The heat begins to build on Monday with isolated storms expected during the overnight hours Monday into Tuesday morning. Drying out by Friday into next weekend. And for areas east of the D-FW area, they could move in after 7 p.m., possibly closer to 10 p.m. Timing will very much depend on when and where initial T-storms develop in northwestern North Texas. Highs will be in the upper 80s and 90s through the period. Sunday afternoon pop-up showers or storms are possible, but coverage will not be high.
