A storm threatening to hinder early Christmas travel from central and coastal Texas to central New England will bring heavy rain to the area for the start of the weekend.

A thunderstorm along with heavy rain could lead to flooding in urban areas in and around the city. It will also be breezy throughout the day with the potential for wind gusts up to 20 mph.

However, the rain will likely subside overnight and be gone by Sunday.

Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s on Sunday, and despite the breeze, the sunshine will return to Dallas.

Sunny skies are in the forecast from Sunday through next weekend, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Temperatures will remain in the high 40s to low 50s through midweek, so despite the sun the air will still feel chilly in Dallas.

The next chance for some rain will come on Sunday.
