Rain in DFW over weekend likely after festivals

You never really know with Texas weather, but forecasters are saying this weekend is looking promising for the myriad festival-goers throughout Tarrant County.

It looks like Friday afternoon’s storms that have blossomed in Dallas County and to the east of Tarrant County, bode well for the weekend Tarrant County festivals.

“Things should be pretty beautiful until late tomorrow night or early Sunday morning,” said Nick Hampshire, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Expect showers and thunderstorms -- possibly severe -- to get going somewhere between midnight and 1 a.m. after Saturday evening festivities are over, Hampshire said. (Of course, the timing could be a little off, so it still bodes well for those who stay aware of the latest forecasts.)

The storm should also clear out no later than a couple of hours after daybreak. There is, however, the potential for as much as 2 inches of rainfall with that overnight storm, so things may be a little soggy on Sunday morning.

Temperature-wise, it’s going to be in the upper 50s this evening.

Saturday will be in the upper 70s.

Saturday night will be around 50 degrees.

Sunday will top off in the upper 60s.

Sunday night will be unseasonably cool, with temperatures in the upper 40s. (A cold front from the north will pass through around 1 a.m., causing the temperature drop.)
