The jet stream pattern will begin to shift on Saturday, opening up the possibility of spotty to scattered storms Saturday through the first half of next week. This is in contrast to the ridge of high pressure that has sat over North Texas for much of mid-June keep our weather pattern very warm and dry.

DFW has had only a trace of rainfall in June. In 122 years, there have only been two years where there was only a trace of rain for the entire month of June. After an extended dry period, the first full week of summer will feature daily rain chances with seasonable temperatures in the low 90s.
