NORTH TEXAS ( — Heads up, North Texas! The First Alert Weather Team has issued a weather alert for this evening through Friday morning due to the potential of strong-to-severe storms.

That cold front will push a line of showers and thunderstorms our way from west to east after midnight. So, areas west of I-35 and I-35W will begin seeing rain and storms between midnight and 3 a.m. 

The line will continue pushing east toward the DFW Metroplex after 4 a.m. through the morning commute. In fact, we'll likely see periods of rain through at least 9 a.m. for the metroplex. 

Keep in mind that large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain and an isolated tornado are all possible with this line of storms. So, prepare for a messy Friday morning drive to work and/or school.

The threat for rain and storms will diminish from west to east closer to noon Friday. Most of the wet weather will be over East Texas by early Friday afternoon.

After the storms pass, we'll see clearing skies and sunshine for your Friday afternoon. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s to near 80.

Then, for your weekend, we're tracking some decent weather. We'll see sunny skies Saturday with highs in the mid 70s. By Sunday, highs will be in the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.

Another cold front pushes in early next week with cooler weather and an isolated shower Monday and Tuesday.
