Chelsea Humphrey: Tracking a good shot for rain this week

ABILENE, Texas - A series of cold fronts and upper air disturbances will keep the rain chances in the forecast through Saturday.

Overnight Sunday, the rain chances aren't here yet. We'll see mostly clear skies with lows cooling to the mid 70s.

Monday will be mostly clear for much of the day. A nearly stationary front will inch closer to the Big Country before washing out. This weak boundary will serve as the focal point for isolated showers and t'storms.

Highs Monday will still be sweltering, topping out in the upper 90s.

Overnight Monday, into Tuesday, we'll cool to the upper 60s with slightly cooler air in place. Showers will also likely become more widespread.

The rain chances linger into Tuesday, especially south of I-20. Highs will warm to around 90 degrees with a bit more cloud cover.

Wednesday we're tracking a disturbance that will traverse the region. This brings storms chances back into the region along with a more potent cold front. Highs will warm to the mid 90s before that front arrives.

Storm chances look to be about 40% overnight Wednesday and into Thursday as the front sweeps in. Highs will top out around 90 ahead of the front.

Friday and Saturday will be cooler with highs in the upper 80s and a 20% chance for showers.

Sunday, high pressure returns to the area, drying us out and heating us back up to the low 90s.
