DFW Weather: Timeline of Monday rain in North Texas

Widespread rain returns to North Texas on Monday making for another cloudy, rainy, and chilly day.

Sunday will be dry and cool, but Monday will be cloudy, chilly, and rainy.

Showers will be on the increase with rain very likely from the mid-morning through mid-afternoon.

Keep reading for more details on timing, coverage, rainfall amounts, and who could see some wintry weather…


After a freezing start for most, Sunday will be another quiet but cool day.

Mid to high level clouds will stream in from the west, but enough sunshine gets through them to warm temps into the low 50s by the afternoon.


Monday will start off with a good deal of cloud cover and perhaps a passing light shower or drizzle. 

For the kiddos at the bus stop or the morning commute, it does not look overly wet. It will continue to be chilly with temps around 40°.

In D-FW, rain will increase through the morning hours with widespread showers likely by mid-morning lasting through mid-afternoon.

Here’s a look at the timing:

Rain will mainly be in the form of light to moderate showers. However, can’t rule out some t-storms with lightning and heavier rain. Severe storms are very unlikely.

By mid-afternoon into the evening, widespread rain will move into eastern North Texas and keep moving east through the evening with most of North Texas dry by evening into the nighttime hours.

Because of the clouds and rain, temps in North Texas will only hover in the 40s all day long.

Rainfall totals

Rainfall amounts do not look overly impressive with this event, but it’s definitely better than nothing!

Amounts ranging from around .10in to .50in look most likely for most of North Texas.

Western North Texas, which needs the rain most due to ongoing drought, unfortunately will see the lowest totals with only around a trace to .10in possible. 

Eastern North Texas into East Texas could see slightly higher amounts ranging from .50in to 1in.

Winter weather!?


Snow will be possible in the even colder air up in Oklahoma with a dusting to a couple inches possible in and around Oklahoma City. Parts of the Texas Panhandle to parts of Arkansas could see some light snow accumulations as well.

In North Texas, it is not impossible for rain to mix with a few sleet pellets or flakes of snow along the Red River, but anything more than that looks unlikely at this point.

Rest of the week

Cold mornings followed by cool to chilly afternoons.

Lows each day will be in the 30s with afternoon highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.

After Monday, the rest of the week looks dry as of now.

Rain chances next weekend into the following week are not very clear, but temps look to stay cool to chilly right on into the following week.
