After an unseasonably warm Martin Luther King Jr. Day in North Texas, the rest of the week will be much cooler with on and off periods of rain.
The rain chances pick up on Wednesday and continue through Friday morning. Some weekend rain is also looking likely, especially Sunday when there's a chance of thunderstorms late.
This wet pattern is all due to a strong area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere. This combined with the position of the jet stream will send several disturbances and pacific moisture our way giving us a daily chance for rain.
The rain will not be too heavy and we will have several dry hours this week. Rainfall totals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will be less than one inch.
Areas to the east will see the most rain with an inch and a half to two inches possible.
