ABILENE, Texas - Our storm chances are on the rise Wednesday afternoon, following a very hot day.
Look for temperatures climbing into the mid 90s with mostly sunny skies. Dewpoints in the 60s will make it feel muggy, but south winds at 10 to 20 mph will bring a little relief.
Current thinking has storms developing near Lubbock and Midland, along the dryline.
These storms have the potential to hold together and move into our western counties late in the afternoon.
Into the evening, these storms will continue to push east, bringing rain chances to the rest of our area.
Any rain we see will move east by Thursday morning with lows cooling into the mid 70s.
We'll track a cold front through the region Thursday. Ahead of the front, we'll still see highs in the low to mid 90s.
The front does bring with it a chance for more showers, especially east of Abilene.
We'll cool to the upper 60s by Friday morning.
From there, look for highs in the upper 80s and low 90s with a good mix of clouds and sun.
The weekend looks sunny and hot with afternoon highs in the mid 90s.
Breezy winds develop Monday, coming in from the south at 10 to 20 mph.
While high pressure will continue to be the main player in our forecast as we kick off our next work week, a weak disturbance will pass by, bringing rain chances back.
We'll see a 20% chance for showers Monday with highs in the mid 90s. Lows cool to the low 70s overnight with rain chances lingering.
Tuesday looks drier and hot again with highs around 95.
