    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain

    It's been a wet start to May in North Texas, and now we're trending cooler!

    Although the threat for heavy rain has ended for now, there’s more rain and storms in the forecast well into Saturday morning. Severe weather is not expected, but the strongest storms could produce some hail and frequent lightning.

    In addition to more rain, the clouds and northerly winds will keep temperatures unseasonably cool through the weekend. Average highs on May 10 are in the low to mid 80s. We’ll be about 10-15 degrees below that through the weekend. 

    Sunshine returns in time for Mother's Day. A gradual warming trend returns next week.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
