ABILENE, Tx -

The dry streak over the past several days appears to be in jeopardy as we get closer to the weekend. We are still tracking a disturbance in northern Mexico which is of tropical origins and the flow around it looks to increase our chances for a shower or thundershower in the afternoon hours of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. It still appears as though our southern viewing area is most favored for rainfall.

As far as today, sunny skies will carry us into the afternoon hours. Some afternoon clouds will pop up again as we get into peak heating. Expect temperatures to reach the lower to mid 90s across all of west central Texas. It is possible that southern portions such as McCulloch and Concho counties could pop an afternoon shower but we will keep those rain chances down around 10% at best. Most of us should stay dry and warm today.

Thursday will start out sunny and build towards some afternoon clouds. Isolated showers and thundershowers will become possible in the afternoon and evening hours, especially south. Chances of rainfall look to be around 20%. Look for high temperatures in the low to mid 90s.

Friday and Saturday will be more humid with partly cloudy skies expected. Isolated showers and thundershowers will again be possible especially in the afternoon and evening hours. Rain chances will be around 20%. Highs in the low to mid 90s. For Sunday we will keep the forecast dry with plenty of sunshine and readings going back into the mid 90s.
