Following a soaking rain across particularly the northern 1 / 2 of North Texas yesterday and into today, a repeat today is not likely. Greatest rain totals in the last 24 hrs were around areas from Sherman to Bonham to Greenville to Sulphur Springs. Areas of Grayson, Search, Fannin, Delta, and Hopkins counties selected up between 5 inches to 9 inches within the last 24 hrs!
Rain chances decrease and temps increase after Monday. Far western regions of North Texas often see some stray showers or storms Tuesday and Wednesday, but many of North Texas stays dry. Heat builds all of those other week with highs during the upper 90s and perhaps triple digits by late week. Heat index values at or over 105° look to become a definite possibility particularly the other half each week. As the recent rain is nice, this means the floor is very saturated which moisture can help keep humidity high now. Couple that humidity using the heat, and it’ll likely feel oppressive for that other half each week and into next weekend. Summer time isn’t done at this time!

Scattered showers and storms will reduction in coverage today with many places dry through the mid to late evening hrs.
Late tonight and into Monday morning, scattered showers and perhaps some t-storms are possible mainly for that northern 1 / 2 of North Texas including DFW. Once more, prevalent, soaking rain isn’t likely, however, many passing rain can be done to begin Monday. By Monday mid-day, think rain and storms chances is going to be rather low.
High temps today can be really tricky. They’ll likely are the 80s to mid 90s based on where you reside. 80s are most likely in areas that really go to town the clouds as well as in areas close to the Red River. 90s is going to be feasible for individuals that see a respectable amount regarding or thinner clouds this mid-day.
