Thunderstorms possible in Dallas-Fort Worth this weekend

The weekend won’t be a washout, but north Texas could see some showers and storms.

Most of Saturday is expected to be dry, but the main event will happen on Saturday evening as a series of storms will develop to the west and east, according to Grant Johnston, meteorologist for KXAS-TV (NBC5).

“If they push towards North Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth, they’ll get weaker,” said Johnston. “I don’t think we’re going to have a big big event at all.”

In the west, these storms could generate harmful winds and large hail, but these threats are not expected in Dallas-Fort Worth, NBC5 weather anchor Keisha Burns said.

Though no thunderstorms are expected in Dallas-Fort Worth, there could be isolated storms that persist in the area until Sunday morning before the rain stops, Burns said.

After Sunday morning, North Texas is waiting for a mild week with no significant storm probabilities in the forecast for next week, Burns said.

March is usually a wet month for Dallas-Fort Worth, with an average of 3.47 inches of rain per month, according to the weather service.
