People in the Dallas Fort-Worth metro area should get ready for thunderstorms and heavy rain that will arrive tomorrow afternoon.

According to The National Weather Service, "A cold front will move through the region late Wednesday bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances will increase by late afternoon with a threat for thunderstorms in the late evening hours." It's important to mention that thunderstorms often contain strong winds alongside heavy rain. So, if you're driving on the roads, be cautious of debris such as fallen trees or power lines.

Here are several graphics from the National Weather Service that show a detailed forecast for Wednesday afternoon:

While severe weather is not expected during Wednesday night, you should still practice caution while walking or driving in stormy conditions. As you can see, thunderstorms will continue primarily near the I-35 corridor:

The national forecast for Wednesday is depicted in the map below. Rain and thunderstorms are expected across eastern Texas, as well as Louisiana, Oklahoma, and other neighboring states.

Thankfully, no tropical storms are expected to form in the Gulf of Mexico over the next few days, per the National Hurricane Center. However, the Hurricane season doesn't officially end until November 30. So, there is a tiny possibility of a large storm bringing strong winds and heavy rain to the region at some point during the next few weeks. But if that happens, I'll make sure to keep you updated.
