ABILENE, Texas -

We are tracking thunderstorms in our eastern counties Tuesday evening.  The upper level disturbance that is helping to create them should move east of our region overnight.  Look for dry weather for our region again Wednesday.

A strong low pressure area is forecast to develop in the Texas Panhandle Thursday.  This should push the dryline eastward through the Big Country late Thursday afternoon.  Thunderstorms will be possible for mainly the Big Country for late Thursday afternoon and evening.

A cold front is expected to move into the northern portions of the region Friday.  However, we are keeping the forecast dry for Friday.

Noticeably cooler temperatures should be back with us by Saturday night and for Sunday.
