ABILENE, Texas -

We are carrying a chance of storms in the forecast through this weekend and even into next week.

It will be partly sunny on Friday with highs into the upper 70s and breezy south winds blowing at 15-20 mph.

The dryline will move closer to our forecast area today and with a stationary boundary located just north of us we will carry a chance of thunderstorms Friday afternoon.

Best storm chances are for our northern and western areas.

A few storms may become severe and produce large hail and gusty winds.

Overnight temps will stay in the upper 50s with a 30% chance of thunderstorms.

It will be partly sunny with highs in the lower 80s and a slight chance of thunderstorms Saturday afternoon.

Easter Sunday will be in the upper 70s with a chance of storms generally in our eastern counties where there will be more moisture available.
