Updated at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday: Revised to include new forecast information.

After a dry Monday, there could be more storms ahead for North Texas late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Rain chances are low Tuesday night. Storms are expected to develop west of the area and move east, according to KXAS-TV (NBC5) chief meteorologist Rick Mitchell.

“But they will tend to weaken as they do so,” Mitchell said.

On Wednesday, Dallas-Fort Worth’s severe weather risk increases slightly, according to the National Weather Service.

A batch of thunderstorms is possible Wednesday morning, followed by a break from the rain. There’s a chance that storms could return in the afternoon and into the evening, according to Mitchell.

Dallas-Fort Worth "could receive large hail and damaging winds with the strongest thunderstorms that develop,” Mitchell said.

After Wednesday, North Texas is expected to dry out for a couple of days, and temperatures are expected to rise into the upper 90s by Thursday, which could be some of the hottest temperatures of the year so far.

At DFW International Airport, the temperature has reached 90 degrees only 12 days this year, including Tuesday. By this time last year, highs had risen into the 90s more than 30 times.

Here’s what KXAS-TV (NBC5) has in the forecast:

Wednesday: 95/74, 20-40% chance of thunderstorms
Thursday: 97/76
Friday: 95/77
Saturday: 92/78
Sunday: 91/77, 0-20% chance of thunderstorms

From snow to severe thunderstorms to 100-degree heat, Dallas-Fort Worth gets it all. Stay up to date with important weather news alerts for North Texas.
