The threat of severe weather that was forecast for Wednesday evening fizzled out after dark, but forecasters said thunderstorms were still possible overnight and Thursday.
Storms that developed in the Panhandle could arrive in North Texas sometime after midnight, WFAA Chief Meteorologist Pete Delkus said.
But two other systems failed to bring severe weather, Delkus said. Forecasters thought an outflow boundary, also known as a gust front, would settle across the region and trigger storms, but instead the boundary moved to Waco.
Also, a dry line in West Texas that was headed for North Texas moved farther west, missing the region.
Thursday will bring another chance for severe weather, said Ted Ryan, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. The forecast calls for a 30 to 50 percent chance for scattered thunderstorms, Ryan said, with a low to moderate threat of tornadoes.
More of the same is expected Friday, Ryan said. Daytime temperatures will be in the 80s Thursday and Friday.
Saturday, the forecast calls for mostly clear skies and no chances of rain. High temperatures will be in the mid-80s.
“Weather should be beautiful on Saturday,” Ryan said.
Rain chances return on Sunday and Monday.
