Raindrops are headed for North Texas, unfortunately forecasters say it may not be much.

But before the showers and rains come on Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Fort Worth called for sunny skies on Tuesday with daytime temperatures in the lower 60s. North winds made it a chilly morning in North Texas, the low temperature at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport was 42 degrees and it was 43 at Love Field in Dallas.

An upper level disturbance will bring a good chance of showers and light rain on Wednesday.

“It’ll be cloudy in the morning when you get up,” said meteorologist Jesse Moore at the NWS office in Fort Worth on Tuesday. “The showers will be here about mid-morning and it will be widespread.”

Forecasters say there’s a 70 percent chance of rain on Wednesday, 30 percent that evening. However, forecasters say the average amount of rain will be near a tenth of an inch.

Temperatures will be in the upper 50s on Wednesday with breezy south winds at 15 to 25 mph.

After Thursday, the rest of the week will be dry with partly cloudy skies. Lows in the mornings will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s and daytime high temperatures will be in the 70s.

Forecasters say the last weekend in March will be very spring-like in North Texas with warm temperatures and mostly clear skies.
