Temperatures will be in the low 90s Monday, but the moisture in the air could make it feel like 100 degrees or more in the afternoon, meteorologist Matt Bishop said.

If storms linger, the biggest threats are heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds. Hail and tornadoes are unlikely.

As of Sunday morning, North Texas has had has had 2.62 inches of rain in June, more than an inch above normal.

No rain was recorded through the first two weeks of June last year, according to the National Weather Service.

The middle of the week looks hot but dry for North Texas. Friday and Saturday could bring more potential for rain.
