    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    NBC 5 News

    We've waited and waited... and our time has finally come. The extended summer heat is beginning to move out of North Texas and cooler air is already starting to arrive.

    The first cold front moved through North Texas Sunday evening. We had quite a few showers and storms late Sunday afternoon, but many of them diminished as the sun set.

    While a couple of showers will still be possible through Monday morning, the bulk of the rain will be gone by the time the sun rises Monday.

    We're not done with just one cold front. We get to watch temperatures tumble a second time later this week.

    Another stout front will move across North Texas late in the day Thursday. Additional storms will be possible with the second front too. The second blast of cool air will send temperatures down into the 60s for highs by Friday and lows into the 40s by Saturday morning! If you've got plans to go to the Red River Showdown on Saturday, plan on a cool and sunny day with temperatures in the 40s in the morning and in the middle to upper 60s by Saturday afternoon.

    Before the Storm
    Weather Safety

    Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
     
    At Home?
    • Head indoors immediately
    • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
    • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
    Outdoors?
    • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
    • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it's all you have.
    Driving?
    • Stay inside your vehicle.
    • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
    • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
    • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.
