North Texans could hear some rumbles of thunder overnight.

A cold front expected to move through North Texas late Thursday could lead to some overnight thunderstorms, according to KXAS-TV (NBC5) meteorologist Grant Johnston.

“It’s after midnight that we’ll see those storm chances climbing as a pretty intense line of storms drops down out of Oklahoma,” Johnston said.

The Storm Prediction Center placed most of North Texas, including Dallas-Fort Worth, at a slight risk for severe weather.

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but some storms could produce gusty winds and hail, according to Johston. The best chances for storms in Dallas-Fort Worth should be around 3 a.m. Friday, Johnston said.

Any storms that develop are expected to move through quickly and should be south of Dallas-Fort Worth by sunrise Friday, according to Johnston.

The weekend is expected to stay dry and cooler than normal, with highs in the 70s, Johnson said.

May is typically the wettest month of the year for Dallas-Fort Worth, with an average of 4.9 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service. Since 1950 in North Texas, there have been more tornadoes in April and May than all other months combined, according to the weather service.

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

Thursday: 84/61

Friday: 73/66; early storms

Saturday: 73/51
