Strong to severe thunderstorms could put a damper on Memorial Day activities in the Dallas area.
Monday morning should be all right for Memorial Day commemoration around the Metroplex but a couple of heavy storms are possible for the afternoon, which could wreak havoc with picnics and other outdoor activities.
People should be alert to changing weather conditions and seek shelter if thunder is heard.
The wet weather will continue through midweek. Tuesday will see periods of heavy rain, including a thunderstorm throughout the day. With the heavy rainfall comes the risk of flooding.
Still, the rain is expected to be a welcome relief to help combat the ongoing drought conditions.
The heat and humidity will increase across the Metroplex, starting Wednesday. Daytime highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s into the weekend.
The normal high for this time of year is 86 degrees F.
The threat for thunderstorms in the area is expected to remain Wednesday through Friday.
