KEN MOLESTINA: All right, let's talk a little weather right now on this Monday. Let's get out to Erin Moran now and see how things are shaping up for the rest of the day and, of course, the rest of this workweek. Happy Monday to you.

ERIN MORAN: Happy Monday, Ken, and not a bad way to start the workweek, right? We had sunny skies. That's still ongoing right now, and temperatures are sitting in the 70s, and a couple of spots are even in the low 80s.

So Klyde Warren Park, 76 degrees. We've got that south wind at 18 miles an hour, so it is definitely on the breezy side. 73 for McKinney, 74 in Denton right now, 75 for Fort Worth, and 76 in Dallas. But then, you've got Breckenridge at 81 degrees, and I have a feeling Graham is probably reporting in in the low 80s as well.

Tonight, it is still very nice, but the clouds are gonna be increasing across North Texas. It's gonna be windy, and that's gonna keep temperatures in the mid- and upper-50s across the region. 58 degrees, southeast winds at about 15 miles an hour on average, and tomorrow, it feels pretty similar, but it's gonna look a little different.

We've got mostly cloudy skies, breezes starting to kick up out of the south-southwest. We should top out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. I'm going with a forecast high of 79 for Tuesday, but what we're gonna be watching for, especially once we get to that 7:00 PM time frame, the chance for a few showers and storms as a cold front approaches North Texas.

So here 7:00 AM tomorrow, and the clouds have already just kind of infiltrated the region, and they're sticking around throughout the day. Rain chance is at about 10% to 20%. So I'm not anticipating much in the way of rain during the day on Tuesday, and realistically, there will be some spots that don't see much of anything even as we get into Tuesday night as well. But here's that cold front starting to slide through the region. 7:00, 8:00 o'clock in the evening and you've got some showers and even a few storms for some of our Red River counties, some of our Northeastern counties as well.

Metroplex, your rain chances are pretty limited-- only at about 20% to 30%-- but the rain chances increase just a little bit the farther north and east you go. And there could be a few stronger storms as well as this cold front begins to make its way through, but the threat seems to be on the lower side. I do think we're gonna have to watch, especially, areas near Paris, maybe out toward Tyler as well. But you notice, these storms kind of intensify as they track a little farther to the east and to the northeast.

So then, as the cold front sweeps through overnight, the storm threat diminishes. We still have a few showers around Wednesday morning. And then, into Wednesday afternoon, we are clearing out. We're drying out. But it will be breezy, and it's going to be a little cooler as well.

So that severe threat for tomorrow night, it's a level one risk, a marginal risk-- 1 out of 5. And you notice, it is barely clipping our northeastern counties right now. So we've got Greenville, Paris, and then just to the north of Tyler where we're watching for some of those stronger storms.

A little bit of rainfall, maybe up to a 1/2 inch of rain for some spots east of I-35. And then, in that area near Paris, you're seeing rain a little bit closer to, maybe, an inch in accumulation. And this is kind of how we ended the month of March. Of course, with the allergens still on the high side. Elm, fungus, juniper, maple, mulberry, oak-- not going anywhere for us.

The temperatures are gonna take a little dip into Wednesday. We are down to about 63, but upper 60s for April 1 on Thursday, and then low to mid-70s for the weekend. Easter Sunday, a high of 76 again.

KEN MOLESTINA: All right, the weekend is looking good. Something to look forward to here in the long run, right, for the rest of the week.
