What to Know
- An unsettled weather pattern will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to North Texas this week.
- The highest storm will be during the afternoon hours.
- For the Fourth of July, there will be a chance of pop-up showers and storms across North Texas.
North Texas will have a rather unsettled weather pattern to end the month of June and begin the month of July. Each day will feature at least a chance of a few showers and storms, and temperatures will be lower than normal. However, the humidity will remain moderately high so it will still be muggy.
The reason for this type of pattern is the position of the jet stream. With a strong ridge of high pressure over the Pacific Northwest and another one over the Northeast, Texas is caught in the middle within a trough of low pressure.
This type of jet stream pattern is favorable for the development of pop-up showers and storms, mainly during the afternoons and evenings across Texas. Since the position of the jet stream won't greatly change in the coming days, the chance of rain will continue.
Not everyone will have rain every day, and it certainly won't rain all of the time. In fact, there will be far more dry hours in the next week than wet hours.
For the Fourth of July, there will be a chance of pop-up showers and storms across North Texas. Central Texas may experience more numerous showers and storms.
In addition to the potential for rain, this pattern brings below normal temperatures. The normal high temperature on July 1 is 94, but highs will likely be in the 80s to low 90s through the holiday weekend. In fact below normal temperatures can be expected for the first week of July.
