Tranquil and warm weather will be the rule in Dallas early this week prior to the arrival of a complex storm system.

The daytime high was 77 degrees in the city on Tuesday, but conditions are expected to change Wednesday.

A storm system is moving eastward across the Intermountain West, delivering a blizzard to the northern Rockies. As the system moves eastward, a severe weather threat will arrive in Dallas on Wednesday.

Any thunderstorms could bring torrential flooding downpours and damaging wind gusts, and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out on Wednesday.

Depending on the timing of the system, showers may linger into Thursday. Drier conditions under sunny skies are expected Friday and Saturday.
