Fog hung low over parts of Texoma Saturday and the drizzle that accompanied it is expected to give way overnight.
Rain should start to fall by Sunday evening. Jason Godwin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, said the area could see locally heavy rainfall from 1 to 2 inches, but he can’t rule out some areas getting up to 3 inches of rain. He said though there could be some locally heavy winds with the storms, he doesn’t see a big chance for tornadoes.
Rain should move out by Monday morning, Godwin said, but could return from Tuesday to Thursday with low rain changes staying in the forecast for much of the week.
None of that should present much in the way of hazardous driving conditions, as the lows overnight are predicted to stay well above freezing for the rest of the weekend and into the week.
That doesn’t mean winter has completely abandoned the area though. Godwin said the North Texas area generally sees its last freeze late in March, though some have been known to come as late as mid April. He said April and May are generally the wettest times of the year for this area, so it looks like locals might want to find a handy place for those umbrellas and rain boots.
