Metroplex temperatures are expected to drop by midweek as scattered storms and showers accompany an incoming cold front.

Residents will have to endure the near 100-degree heat of the early week until a cold front approaches late Wednesday night, said Jason Godwin, National Weather Service meteorologist. The moderately paced, southern-moving front will be accompanied by scattered storms and showers expected to produce a rainy pattern through Sunday. 

The highest chances of rain for Arlington will be Wednesday and Thursday, but the chance of rain decreases moving into the weekend, Godwin said.

The storms aren’t expected to be severe, but cold front-driven storms can typically produce isolated wind threats, Godwin said. Most areas around the Metroplex will get about an inch of rain, and an increase in humidity is expected through the end of the week as these storms pass through, he said.
