After a wet Monday morning, DFW has a dry week ahead.

The bulk of the rain fell between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday in Denton County and farther north, said Dennis Cain, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Less than a quarter-inch was recorded in most of Dallas/Fort Worth, but the rainfall was “highly variable,” and DFW International Airport recorded 0.81 inches.

There were a few unconfirmed reports of small hail in Tarrant County, Cain said.

DFW is expected to be dry until the weekend, Cain said, with showers expected to begin Friday night and continue throughout the day Saturday and possibly into Sunday.

The area will have high temperatures in the low 70s Monday and Tuesday, but a stronger cold front Tuesday night will cool down the area. The weather service expects highs around 60 and lows around 40 Wednesday through Friday. The high temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are forecast at around 50 degrees.
