ABILENE, Texas -

Early this morning skies are variably cloudy and readings begin around 70 for most areas. East winds have been going from 5-10 mph.

The best chance for a shower or thundershower on this Tuesday will be during the afternoon hours. Similarly to Monday, coverage should be fairly limited. Highs head for the lower to mid 90s under a general partly sunny sky condition. Southeast winds blow from 10-15 mph.

Tonight variably cloudy skies may yield an isolated evening thundershower. Another chance for wet weather will arrive along the leading edge of a warm front in the overnight hours. Lows drop into the lower to middle 70s. Southeast winds continue around 10 mph.

Wednesday looks to shake out hot and dry-slotted for West Central Texas as a disturbance moves just off to our north. Breezy south southwesterly winds around low pressure will pump very warm air into our region. Look for highs around 100 degrees with a good deal of sunshine.

The cold front associated with this weather impulse now looks to swing through West Texas late Wednesday night. Scattered showers and thundershowers will be possible as the front moves southward through West Texas.

Morning clouds give way to afternoon sunshine on Thursday. The mercury reaches the middle to upper 80s.

We are now going with a dry forecast for Friday and Saturday as the deepest moisture will be relegated south and east of the viewing area. The thermometer heads for the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

Sunday and Monday also keep us dry under partly cloudy skies. Readings head for the lower 90s.
