With summertime just around the corner, you can keep your umbrellas in the closet this week as sunshine and warm temperatures make their way back to North Texas.

Today will be nothing but clear, sunny skies with a high right around normal for this time of year at 87, and a little bit cooler overnight with a low of 64. Winds should remain calm at about 5 to 10 mph.

“Things are looking terrific. [We have] dry weather, which usually during this time we’re hoping for rain, but after the rain that we had last week, we’re grateful for dry weather,” National Weather Service meteorologist Jesse Moore said.

The rest of the week should be warm with plenty of sunshine to help soak up some of that rain from last week. Temperatures will remain in the low 90s into the weekend and may reach up to 91 on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Overnight lows should stay in low- to mid-70s with clear skies.

After a week of nonstop rain, no rain is in the forecast until at least early next week. There is a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms beginning Sunday, Moore said.

Although the rain has stopped for now, Moore reminds residents around the Brazos and the west fork of the Trinity River that those areas are still in flood stage and to take caution when traveling in these areas.
