Dry and warm weather will prevail across Dallas on throughout the weekend, but severe weather will make its return before Sunday.

A severe weather pattern moving east across the central and southern Plains is expected to push into the area Saturday night or Sunday morning.

"It still favors tornadoes," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Randy Adkins Jr. said, adding that the greatest risk lies in large hail and damaging wind gusts.

The greatest threat for severe weather will persist after the midnight hour Saturday and into the early morning hours on Sunday, he said.

AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski added that whatever thunderstorms develop Saturday night will weaken as they approach the Dallas Metroplex into early Sunday morning.

Throughout the day Sunday, gusty thunderstorms could redevelop just to the west of Dallas and the Fort Worth area.

"Dallas doesn't look like a prime target for severe weather, but certainly they could experience it," Kottlowski said.

Temperatures will remain in the mid-80s into Monday. As a cold front approaches, temperatures will slide slightly Tuesday.
