Showers, thunderstorms coming back to North Texas

Forecasters are calling for a 60 percent chance of rain for Sunday night and 50 percent on Monday.

The rain took a break Sunday afternoon in North Texas, but forecasters predict it’ll be back overnight, with scattered showers and thunderstorms continuing during today’s morning commute.

Most of Tarrant County missed a good soaking early Sunday as showers and storms passed through the area and dropped only tiny amounts: Dallas/Fort Worth Airport got 0.03 inch Sunday morning and Denton received 0.22 inch.

Other areas fared better. Waco recorded 1.18 inches, and it rained just over an inch near Decatur, according to the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth.

“The ingredients for showers and storms will return, giving us more chances of rain,” Steve Fano, a weather service meteorologist in Fort Worth, said Sunday. “We could see what we had Sunday morning or we could see some good rain.”

The weather service in Fort Worth called for a 60 percent chance of rain Sunday night.

A cold front arrives this morning, bringing a 50 percent chance of rain. “It does look like commuters will face the rain in the morning,” Fano said Sunday.

The cold front also will bring temperatures down, but just a little. Today’s high temperature should be about 85 and Tuesday’s about 87. Morning temperatures will be in the low 70s or upper 60s.

Forecasters bagged chances for rain Wednesday, but a 20 percent possibility returns Thursday. Plan on high temperatures in the 90s Wednesday and the rest of the week.
