Don’t count on a deluge, but North Texas could actually see some rain this week.

Storms were forming northwest of Fort Worth Monday afternoon and were expected to drift into the DFW area later this afternoon.

“The outflow boundary should be moving into the Metroplex later this afternoon and we should see some scattered thunderstorms around rush hour,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jesse Moore.

There’s a slight chance of rain through Saturday with the best chances expected to be Friday.

The main circulation from the remnants of Hurricane Ingrid, which made landfall near La Pesca in northeastern Mexico on Monday morning, is predicted to stay south of Texas. But the circulation from Ingrid and Tropical Storm Manuel are expected to pull more moisture northward into Texas later this week.

Parts of South Texas are under a flash flood watch where parts of the Rio Grande Valley were seeing heavy rainfall.

Locally, high temperatures will remain in the 90s though Thursday, but should drop into the 80s by Friday.

A weak cold front may reach the DFW area by this weekend but there is no sign of the first strong cold front bringing fall weather, Moore said
