The better chance for rain will be Tuesday as a potent and fast-moving storm system zips through the region. Rain and scattered thunderstorms will develop and spread across North Texas. A few of the storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds and some hail.The two best days of the week will be Wednesday and Thursday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
