Chelsea Humphrey: Tracking elevated fire danger, rain chances this week

ABILENE, Texas - Warm, windy weather will usher us into the week and cloudy, cooler weather will take us out.

Overnight Sunday, things stay breezy with lows cooling into the mid 60s.

Cloud cover will try to return but will make it about as far north as I-20 by daybreak. Any clouds will dissipate quickly after sunrise.

Highs Monday will warm to the low 90s with south winds 20 to 30 mph. This will result in elevated fire danger so avoid anything that could start a fire.

Overnight lows will cool to the mid 60s with south winds at 15 to 20 mph.

Tuesday looks to be the warmest day on the board with highs warming to the mid 90s. Sunny skies will continue.

The south winds will blow in at 15 to 25 mph so fire danger will stay elevated. 

An area of low pressure will move into the country on the west coast. It'll be a slow mover, virtually stalling around Arizona by Wednesday.

This will bring more moisture into our area, resulting in a bit more cloud cover.

The added clouds will knock afternoon highs down a bit with most of us warming to near 90.

There is a slight chance of a dryline t'storm forming near the Texas/New Mexico border. These storms could hold together to move into our western counties but the rest of the area will stay dry.

Thursday looks similar with western t'storms possible in the afternoon. Highs will warm to the mid 80s with mostly cloudy skies.

Friday, showers are back in the forecast for more of the region. Highs will warm to the upper 80s as clouds continue to stick with us.

Saturday and Sunday, that area of low pressure will slowly near the state. Showers will be possible both days but, for now, we're only carrying slight chances.

Highs both days will top out in the mid 80s.
