FORT WORTH _ The Easter Bunny may need an umbrella this weekend in North Texas.
Rain chances start Friday night in Tarrant County and stretch all the way into next week, the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth is forecasting.
North Texans should have cloudy skies Thursday and Friday with afternoon high temperatures around 70 and a low Friday in the mid 50s.
But forecasters are calling for a 20 percent chance of rain Friday evening, increasing to 30 percent Saturday morning through Easter Sunday afternoon.
"If you have outdoor activities on Sunday, plan on a chance of storms," said meteorologist Dennis Cavanaugh on Thursday. "There's a slight chance on Sunday morning and the chance of rain increases in the afternoon."
Forecasters say Tarrant County could see isolated thunderstorms and showers, but they should be widespread in North Texas this weekend.
High temperatures for Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid-70s while the lows in the mornings will be in the upper 50s, forecasters are predicting.
Rain chances will continue on Monday and Tuesday in North Texas.
Forecasters are calling for a 30 percent chance on Monday and a 20 percent chance on Tuesday.
