Large hail, damaging winds possible with Monday’s storms

After a beautiful day Sunday, the bad news is there could be some storms Monday with hail larger than golf balls and damaging winds.

And it’s going to rain — lots.

“There is a chance of rain Monday morning, but the Monday-morning commute should be fine,” meteorologist Jason Godwin said. “The best chance of storms will be Monday afternoon.”

A few of those storms could bring damaging winds, large hail and a low threat of tornadoes. There’s a 70 percent chance of rain Monday.

Godwin said some residents could see golf-ball-size hail or larger.

Tarrant County residents may have rainfall totals of more than an inch. Other parts of North Texas could get as much as 3 inches. The daytime high is expected to be 79 degrees.

Rain chances will linger into Tuesday and Wednesday. Forecasters are calling for a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Tuesday and a 20 percent chance Wednesday.

The rain should be gone by Wednesday evening.

Daytime temperatures will be in the 70s this week and residents should be waking up to temperatures in the 60s.
