ABILENE, Texas -

We'll be looking at dry conditions on Thursday, but rain chances will be increasing into the weekend.

Look for highs in the lower 70s on Thursday with a partly cloudy sky and breezy south winds at 15-20 really helping to warm us up.

Cloud cover builds into the area overnight with our next upper level storm system approaching.

Temperatures will stay mild in the mid 50s.

Look for highs near 70 on Friday with a mostly cloudy sky.

A weak disturbance ahead of the main system we are tracking will bring a slight chance of showers to the area.

Storms in the Panhandle Friday evening may make it into our northwestern counties late Friday night.

Really the main storm chances move through Saturday afternoon through Saturday night as that storm system brings a Pacific cold front through the area.

A few storms may be severe Saturday night in our eastern counties in particular.
