ABILENE, Texas -

     This past week we have flirted with some very hot weather and we definitely saw our fair share of humid conditions. This coming week looks to bring us back to an extended period of heat starting on Monday and lasting into next weekend. Temperatures may indeed touch 100 degrees more than once before this stretch of heat comes to a close. Nighttime lows will be in the mid 70s and possibly even the upper 70s by week's end.

     More specifically, Monday will open with partly cloudy skies and an isolated shower chance in the morning hours. As the afternoon wears on, a dry line will approach the western Big Country and bring with it a 20% chance for a shower or a thundershower in the afternoon hours. Expecting temperatures to top out near the 96 degree mark under partly sunny skies.

     Tuesday and Wednesday both look to produce a good amount of sunshine with just scattered clouds in the mix. A ridge of high pressure begins to take firm hold of our area over this time frame and rain chances look pretty minimal from current indications. High temperatures are expected to reach around 98 degrees both days.

     Thursday through next Sunday look to be just plain hot with temperatures near 100 degrees each day. High pressure will allow mostly sunny skies to be dominant with rain chances very low. We will follow any changes in the forecast through the week and update them as necessary.
