Dallas weather forecast predicts rain and snow in parts of North Texas
North Texas was snowed in last month by an Arctic blast, forcing many school districts to close and pray we don’t see another power grid disaster. Fortunately for everyone, this cold season hasn’t been too painful (looking at you, Winter Storm Uri).
Last week, the world’s most prominent groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, failed to catch a glimpse of his shadow. Legend has it that this indicates that spring will arrive early this year. In fact, the past few days have looked a lot like spring, with the high temperature in Dallas on Thursday hovering around a balmy 70 degrees.
But wait. Before you get all excited about wearing Hawaiian short sleeves, just remember that it wouldn’t be Texas weather without a little injury.
The National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office posted a graphic to the X on Friday morning to let North Texans know that winter isn’t in the rearview yet.
“We continue to monitor a storm system on Sunday that could bring the potential for a light rain/snow mix across portions of our northwest counties late Sunday into Monday,” the weather service wrote in part.

The chart explains that a mix of light rain and snow could hit the far northwestern parts of the region starting late in the weekend and into the work week. However, don’t count on this powder to last too long: “No buildup is expected at this time,” the chart notes.
Pete Delkos, WFAA’s popular weather forecaster, explained what to expect when it comes to snow. While the The chips will fall Near it, Dallas residents won’t be able to see anything. The temperatures here will be so high that we won’t be able to experience the return of the winter wonderland.
All entertainment lovers should also note that Friday will be the most fun day of the weekend. Delkos expects that although some cloud cover will be seen, Levels will rise into the 70s.
“Some locations in eastern North Texas will see isolated rain, but better rain chances will hold off until tomorrow,” he continued in a post Friday morning on X.
It won’t rain all weekend, but almost everyone will see rain at some point. The highest coverage will be on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The rain does not completely disappear during the afternoon. Temperatures will drop into the 50s by Sunday. #wfaaweather pic.twitter.com/RWhffUlSnn

Rain is almost certain to fall on Saturday and Sunday – each day has an 80% chance – so be sure to have your galoshes ready for action. High temperatures will range around 61 degrees on Saturday and 56 the next day.
But fear not, sun lovers. It is expected that the skies will begin to clear early next week, reaching their peak on a rain-free Valentine’s Day, when the temperature will reach 68 degrees. Thanks cupid.
