ABILENE, Texas -

After significant hail damage Thursday night, the weather quiets down for Friday. Storm chances are back in the forecast overnight.

Look for highs warming into the upper 80s with muggy air settling in.

We'll see a good mix of clouds and sun throughout the day with south winds at 5 to 15 mph.

Late this afternoon we're tracking the chance for storms to develop in eastern New Mexico. As these storms move east, there's a chance they could hold together and bring more rain to our region.

Strong winds and heavy rain will be the main dangers but the hail threat will likely be diminished before the storms arrive.

Lows tonight will cool to around 70 degrees.

Saturday, Flag Day, looks to bring a good mix of clouds and sun with highs in the low 90s.

We'll cool to the low 70s with breezy winds overnight.

Sunday looks mostly sunny with highs in the mid 90s with light south winds.

Into next week, look for the heat to stick around with highs in the low to mid 90s. We'll see breezy south winds at 15 to 20 mph.

Overnight lows will cool to the low 70s.

For now, we're keeping the forecast dry but very unstable air will settle in. This means it won't take much to trigger a shower or thunderstorm.
