Rain-free today, but the chance of rain returns tomorrow with the best chances northeast of DFW.

After that, high pressure moves in to the area in the upper levels of the atmosphere shutting off rainfall chances and heating us backup to seasonal norms into the weekend, upper nineties.

Wednesday and Thursday look to offer the last few chances for rain for the week. Severe weather is not expected but gusty winds are possible. Temperatures quickly heat up by the end of the work week. #texomawx #dfwwx #ctxwx pic.twitter.com/9WSOTuPOFF
