ABILENE, Texas -

Record setting heat is likely on Friday with triple digits back into the forecast.

Temps will be anywhere from the upper 90s to mid 100s Friday across the Big Country and Concho Valley.

The old record for Abilene is 101 so it is possible we could beat or tie that record.

Lots of sunshine remains in place and rain chances stay  low at only 10%.

Storms would be limited to our eastern counties east of the dryline, but if they do develop they could become severe.

Overnight temps will remain warm in the mid 70s with a partly cloudy sky.

It will be partly cloudy on Saturday with highs in the mid 90s with strong south winds at 20-25 mph.

With an approaching trough of low pressure we bring up storm chances to 20% Saturday afternoon with an unstable atmosphere.

Sunday will be mostly sunny, windy and in the mid 90s.
