Though some may see a few sprinkles Monday morning, the next real chance for rain arrives early Tuesday as showers and thunderstorms move across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Between midnight and 6 a.m. Tuesday, showers and a few isolated thunderstorms are expected.

"It won't be a solid squall line like this one early Sunday," said National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Shoemaker. "But it will be fairly widespread with a 70-80 percent chance of rain into Tuesday morning."

Rainfall totals are expected to be no higher than a quarter to a half-inch with the rain ending by noon Tuesday.

While temperatures are expected to climb into the low 60s Monday, they'll only reach the mid-50s on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday is expected to be the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid-60s before another cold front knocks the high temperature back into the 50s on Friday.

For now, Friday's cold front is expected to be dry but a few computer forecast models are suggesting there could be precipitation with that system, Shoemaker said.
