ABILENE, Texas -

Scattered highs clouds and a bit of haze are with us early today and temperatures are in the middle 70s. Winds are out of the south southeast from 5-10 mph.

This afternoon sunshine will be plentiful while the mercury moves into the middle and upper 90s area wide. Another very humid is expected. Southeast breezes come at us from 10-15 mph. Rain chances are nonexistent.

Tonight we drop off into the mid 70s under mostly fair skies.

Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to turn out very similarly with minimal, if any, cloud cover and readings running into the upper 90s. Winds stay light both afternoons.

Full blown heat takes hold Thursday and should extend through the upcoming weekend. It is conceivable each afternoon posts triple digit highs.

Look for full sunshine Thursday and a high very near 100 degrees.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday all appear to be headed for the lower 100s under sunny skies. Winds become a bit breezier on the last day of the work week and that carries into the weekend ahead.
