The jet stream pattern has shifted into a position that is favorable for dry weather for much of North Texas for the coming days. A large ridge of dry high pressure will be firmly entrenched over the Southeast United States. At the same time a chilly area of low pressure is over the Rockies. North Texas is in the middle of these opposite weather systems.
The battle ground between the two systems will be where the best chance of showers and thunderstorms will occur through Friday. That will be parts of West and Northwest Texas, north into parts of Oklahoma and the Central Plains.
With the highest chance of storms remaining mostly to the west and north of North Texas, our forecast looks mainly dry through the Memorial Day weekend.
