Severe storms could return early this week to North Texas before temperatures briefly rise

The rain will likely continue into Tuesday morning.

The warm, dry and sunny weather that lasted throughout the weekend will likely end later Monday as storms are forecast to roll through Dallas-Fort Worth.

Thunderstorms are expected to develop across West Texas late Monday afternoon before moving eastward into North Texas late in the day and overnight into Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Some of the overnight storms in North Texas could grow in strength, making them severe, especially west of Interstate 35. If the storms weaken as they pass through the I-35 corridor, there’s a chance they strengthen again moving into East Texas.


The rain should clear up by Tuesday afternoon in Dallas-Fort Worth, according to forecasts.

Temperatures should warm into the mid-80s and low-90s by Wednesday after the wet weather subsides but the heat will be short-lived. A cold front arrives Thursday into Friday, bringing with it cooler weather and more chances for thunderstorms, the weather service forecasted.


ERCOT, Texas’ grid operator, warned residents this week’s higher temperatures will increase demand across the grid, creating a power emergency. The emergency is expected to begin Tuesday afternoon last into Wednesday.

In a Friday notice, ERCOT said it planned to delay and cancel planned generator outages across the state to help reinforce the grid during a time of high demand and strain.
