ABILENE, Texas -

We'll see a hot afternoon but rain chances are back in the forecast for our northern counties tonight.

Wednesday, we're tracking plenty of sunshine with afternoon highs warming back into the upper 90s.

Overnight, we'll keep the clear skies going for most but a disturbance will bring showers and t'storms to the Panhandle. Some of these storms will hold together long enough to bring rain to folks north of I-20. Temperatures will cool back into the mid to upper 70s.

Thursday, we'll see a clear and dry start to the day. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible again, especially during the peak heating hours. Highs will warm back into the upper 90s with a few triple digits peppered in.

Friday will start out in the mid to upper 70s but changes will begin to take shape during the day.

We'll see a cold front begin to move in during the day Friday. As this front moves in, we'll see our rain chances rise. Look for a 30% chance for thunderstorms and showers, especially as we near day's end. Ahead of the front, we'll see highs in the mid to upper 90s.

Saturday, the rain chances linger as the front stalls out. We'll see a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms areawide. Highs will be slightly cooler thanks to some milder air, in the low to mid 90s.

By Sunday, we're tracking more dry weather. Highs will warm back into the mid 90s and stay there as we head into the start of next week.
