Dallas: Storms, Needed Rain Before Dry Weekend

After reaching 101 F early for the first time this year, Dallas, will have rain and cooler air as storms move into the area before calmer weather arises over the weekend.

Early in the week, a cold front reached the area, bringing more clouds along with showers and thunderstorms for much of the week.

"As the front becomes nearly stalled over the area through late week, repeated rounds of storms can be expected to hit the area through Friday," Mussoline said.

Temperatures will fluctuate between the mid-80s and low 90s before the sunny, dry conditions bring back a rise in temperatures starting over the weekend and continuing into next week.

While the risk of flooding is a serious concern, the heavy rains will also bring some relief to some of the hardest hit drought areas of the state.

Thunderstorms will persist across the city until Saturday with afternoon thunderstorms possible Friday.

There should be dry, partly cloudy skies in time for weekend plans.

Following the late week storms, the humidity will rise along with the high temperatures, as Dallas rises towards 100 F again by Monday afternoon.
